San Savino

Today we went to the small city of Ivrea, which was celebrating its saint, San Savino. A marching band made its way up and down narrow streets, lacing the air with a festive soundtrack.. Art lurked all around seeking attention; against walls, in small boats, propped up in window displays, falling out of tiny shops.. Food was abundant, making the air pregnant with mouthwatering aromas.. Here is a glimpse of the atmosphere:

“What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.” ~ Erica Jong
