Festa of the Ham Sandwich/Sagra Del Panino Con Il Prosciutto

Every year the Misericordia, a volunteering serivce, holds a festa at the village of Castelvechio, Pescia in which to raise money.  Here are some photographs taken during the 2013 festival:

I was quite surprised to find that behind this old village door was actually a small clothing factory.  I never knew!

Bar Marina with awesome panoramic views of the magnificent valley.  Even if you cant make it to the Festa, try popping by for a cappuccino or vino  and loose yourself in the backdrop.

I'm a English photographer and mother living in a quaint medieval village in the hills of Tuscany, Italy. Almost every day I find myself lost in the stunning landscape and architecture of these ancient settlements. I try and portray this beauty through my images, in hope of transporting those browsing to a more peaceful and tranquil place.
