Drummers when not drumming

Drummers from the blue team

Drummers from the blue team

I finally made it down to the finale of the medieval-style games which take place annually in Valtopina.

It was a passionate but very family-oriented affair.

There are 3 factions which have the colours blue, green and yellow.

Our part of town is yellow; I was teased for not having worn yellow.

In the photo we’re waiting for the relay race to begin and the drummers are sitting across the street from me on their drums.

They present quite a delightful tableau of enjoyment and cross-generational friendship.

They also show a nice selection of current Italian male hairstyles!

The white-haired man in profile at the back is the man who said women were tigers and hyenas.
