carnevale

Party On

When I heard the word "carnevale," I pictured Venice.

Now, I'm a changed man.

During my extended stay in Italy, I was lucky enough to share the streets of Foiano della Chiana during the oldest carnevale in all of Italy.

Sorry, Venice.

Being from Texas, I was used to big parades; heck, I even marched in them. But the sites and sounds here in Italy pale in mere text and are truly best experienced in person; it's hard to believe the scenes depicted atop these floats are made of papier-mâché... some about 4 stories tall!

Here's a quick video I made to give you a glimpse of the action. I was pinned-up against a building for most of my shots, so sorry I didn't capture more "spot on" footage.

I'll be lucky enough to catch more of the Carnevale di Foiano in years to come! Learn more about "The" party here.
