Ferragosto, the festival where all things Italian are celebrated and done so in a big vibrant noisy fashion that you just can’t help but get taken in by. I wasn’t sure whether things would still be running by the time we got there. Pushing by all the crowds, gripping my kid’s hands, I obviously needn’t have worried.

Despite having arrived in the middle of the afternoon, we easily squeezed in some Fiat 500 ooohing, icecream eating, coffee inhaling, pizza consuming, dance watching, tracked down the wonderful Five Dock City Farm (and all their amazing goodies), the end of a movie, while still getting home before sunset with a tray of cannoli in my lap. That’s a win right there I think.

  1. Magnifico! This is what’s so great about the inner city. Oh and to end your day with a tray full of cannoli. Just perfect! I’m so curious as to what is in the very small jam jars?


  2. I like the idea that a “people” gave themselves the day off to celebrate themselves. I love the Italian ethos. The way they are so very passionate and engaged with life and food and everything that make life worthwhile. You nailed that first image Ms Cityhippyfarmgirl. Passion on a stick. You deserved those cannoli 🙂
