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.

Assisi Church Fence

Assisi  Church Fence

Here's an image I took a few years ago in Assisi, Italy of an ornate fence in the beautiful Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi. The lovely pinkish hued stone is used in construction throughout the town. Although quite a tourist trap, it is still one of the most stunning, spiritual places I have ever visited.

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.
