Sun and clouds. Busy saturday!


Yesterday afternoon Piazza Bra was really choc-a-bloc! There was a huge event in the Arena last night and people were packed at the gates as early as five in the afternoon. Big italian pop singers (and international stars like Lenny Kravitz) were the guest stars and a red carpet was laid down in the middle of the square to have them walking up to the stage between two rows of crowd. The show will be aired on tv next week.
I took this photo as I was walking past the carpet and onto Via Mazzini, feeling a bit like a salmon swimming his way up the river flow....

Wonderful photo. I can imagine walking through the crowd, along the street and looking in the shops! Grazie! Did the paparazzi take YOUR picture on the red carpet??

I really like this photograph. I can feel the place and the activity. It's alive and you've captured it.
