One great thing about spending the summer in Italy is the summer festivals.
Most weekends, one group or another sponsors a festival. The group can be anything from a political party, a local sports team, or any group looking to raise a little money.
The festival consists of a live band, a bar, and a “restaurant”.
It’s a great place to meet up with friends for a good dinner and a fun night.
We got to go to one in Verdello twice. The first time we went with Mara and Fabri. While we were there with them, we were introduced to some of Fabri’s friends.
The second time we went, we went with Fabri’s friends, who by that time had become our friends as well.
We ate some great food, and danced to the music…a little. The music that night was more like traditional music with specific dances. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have fun.
