Workers' day


Every 1st of May, Italy celebrates the Workers day. Almost everybody is off from work and people traditionally go out of town for a daily trip. There are various events on this day, some of which are quite famous like the big, free concert in Rome that goes on from 3 pm till late evening. We really enjoyed our neighbouring art exhibit in the streets of the Filippini district. Our little one joined an art workshop, painted, draw with chalks on the tarmac and loved the lively atmosphere...

Lovely captured street. I really love it. It's easy visible that it has a soul and unique atmosphere! Great photo!

Looks like a place well worth a visit. If you gave me some paint I could probably produce something like the paintings to the right of the photo. But I think I'd have some difficulty selling them!

It's good to have some festivals where everybody can enjoy and take part in them, bring something home as souvenirs and the most important for children to participate. I rarely see this kind of event back in my country.
