On Friday and over the weekend the local town of Tuscania held its annual 'Tuscania si mostra' which I think translates something like Tuscania herself in exhibition. Anyway it is a Fiera/Fair that was originally an agricultural event but sadly these days it is far from that.
In essence it mainly consists of a very large market spread throughout the centro storico (old historic centre) and also spilling out on to the roads immediately outside the old town walls.
The stalls were of a very diverse nature local and national Italian produce and various artisans such as artists, jewellery makers,woodworkers and glassblowers. Antique dealers, plant salesmen along side all the shoes, clothes, linen and household items that one finds at every market in Italy. We also saw a procession along the streets of some of the actors and actresses from the Tuscania theatre.
For the first time I have been able to share the photographs with you in the form of a mosaic which I have spent all morning working out how to do. As most of you who read this will know I am far from technically minded.
If you want to see them in normal format you can do so here at My Flickr account.
After a week of unsettled weather with rather a lot of rain it made a pleasant change to be able to go out and have a late afternoon passeggiata, as you can see from the photos a lot of other people also had the same idea.
