We live up near the church of San Martino and as the late afternoon approached preparations began:
Vines and flowers were used to decorate the area by the church.
A screen was erected for the slide show.
The dessert table was set up and those of us who live in the area hung coloured cloth (or a floral, orange table cloth in my case) from the windows. You can see my kitchen window in the photo.
Bel fidanzato helped carry the church chairs out so that there would be seats for all. The old people arrived very early just to secure the best seats!
Slowly people filled the church steps and by the time it was dark and the slide show had started there was no where left to sit.
I love village life!
