On September 7th we took part in our second Festa Della Rificolona. This year Jane and Alice made their own lanterns (with a little help...) and met up with some friends, Clotilde and Olesia. The parade started at Piazza Santa Croce, went past the Signoria, around the Duomo and ended at Piazza Santissima Annunziata. A band led the way, and all the kids and parents followed behind until we reached the final party in the piazza. This year our girls carried lanterns, but next year they say they want the pea shooters!
See our post from last year to learn more about the history and happenings of this annual event. We've also added some new photos to our Rificolona photo album.
