via Caprera festival



in order to understand this post, a quick introduction is needed. 
  • Vittorio Veneto is a town in northern Italy, where Marco and i are currently living in. {read more about Vittorio Veneto in this post
  • summer means town festivals, almost every town has its own, bigger towns have more than one. it italian is called sagra. {you can find the word sagra in the italian lexicon for curious travellers}
there is a street, in Vittorio Veneto, called via Caprera. it is 500 metres long, with a few shops and bars. 
via Caprera celebrates its own festival every year in july. 
the festival began with a procession dedicated to the virgin mary and then continues with music, food, stalls: classic small town fair entertainment. 



this year, i diari della lambretta had its place in via Caprera festival. it was a corner we named "my favorite places", with a bunch of travel guides, books, maps, notebooks and... lambrettas, of course. a big world map was dominating the scene, and people were invited to write some travel memories or tips on a post it, and stick it to the map.

it was nice to collect and read them at the end of the day, good stuff to inspire future trips!
