A traditional Eritrean wedding under the tuscan sun

One of the things I love the most about this crazy job is the opportunity to meet always new people and cultures so far from mine that otherwise I would perhaps never got to know.
And that is how I got to meet the tradition, food, dances and colors of a country so far as Eritrea.
Thanks to these wonderful people I could taste their food and listen to different music, although unfortunately the difficulty of the language not let me understand the words I could breathe the same all the love that was in the air.

Back in those days there was always a big party on saturdays and everyone came from nearby fields to have a glass of wine and eat together and forget the toil of work while waiting for the day of rest. This is the atmosphere that I felt while I took these photographs and I was reminded of the stories of the elderly I heard as a child. A dive in a past that is not so distant.   Published on Grace Loves Lace     Olive in Love wedding planner Villa Po ...

In the land of Pinocchio
"Centuries ago there lived-- "A king!" my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm". I decided to start this post with the very first words of the Adventure of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi not very far from the venue where this wedding was celebrated. I chose Pinocchio because the little protagonist of this wedding fairy tale is a young boy who reminded me in a way the famous mar ...
