Palio Flags

Palio Flags

Annually, in the town of Anghiari, Italy, the local people celebrate the famous Battle of Anghiari on June 29th, with the Palio della Battaglia, a costumed pageant taking place in the main square. Flag throwers entertain the crowd with these colourful flags. I look forward to visiting Tuscany again one day soon.

Busatti Purple and White

Purple & White woven cloth

Close on some linen being woven in a traditional manner at Busatti in Anghiari, Italy. Busatti has been making quality linen, wool, hemp and cotton products since 1842. I was lucky enough to take a behind the scenes tour and see the ages old techniques still being used to create wonderful items.
