Our little market town of Aulla is having a four day festival celebrating its origins, called Gli sponsali della rosa e del melograno. Last night there was a demonstration of heroic medieval warfare by the local historical group. There was, of course, abundant food and crafts. I liked the food better.
Here are some of the boys who went down by the river and risked their limbs in medieval combat. The late evening light was perfect.
I have some video of the “war” to show you later. I flinched when the cannon went off. I mean, wouldn’t you?
