Tocatì, last day

Today it was the last day of Tocatì so we spent most of the time out on the streets to see the games. Some places were really chock-a-block and it was almost impossible to penetrate the human barrier to take a look at what was going on. I liked this one, the "Back Hold": in this position the two players have to try to put the other one aground. I so much liked the skirts!
So the sixth edition of Tocatì is finished. Tomorrow the streets will be quiet again. Well, quet-ish...

Note the Borsalino sign: under the arches there is the shop, a very famous and traditional italian hat designer. They have the most beautiful hats!

That festival would have been so much fun to see. Our festival season will be starting soon so hopefully there will be some interesting sights in the streets. Nothing quite like this though.

How fun! The skirts look like Scottish kilt. All I can say is I hope the men were wearing something underneath those skirts especially since tumbling is the aim of the sports.

The hats at Borsalino's website are sooooo beautiful. It's a shame men don't wear hats anymore. Hats are so classy.
