I haven’t posted in a very long time! But I’m back! 🙂
Over in Italian cities (I don’t know where else they do this, so it may be in other countires), they have a patron saint. In Florence, they celebrate their patron saint by putting on a parade and having a soccer/rugby match in Santa Croce square (a church square).
This was actually the day we left for Pisa, so we didn’t see the match. We did see the parade!
It started at the Duomo and ended at Palazzo Vecchio. This was the small morning parade. The evening parade was from the match square to somewhere (I don’t know where it ended! :-)). The people in the parade were dressed in costumes from the 1500s.
At the Palazzo Vecchio, they stopped and the color guard tossed their flags.
What do you think of the pictures? Which was your favorite?
Thanks for reading!
