Between 4pm and 6pm every day the main piazza in our village comes alive with children playing football. *these photos were taken at about 3pm so that's why the piazza isn't filled with children and footballs...!
Luca loves to watch the big kids kick their footballs. He watches their technique and fancy moves and tries to copy them. And he does a pretty good job.
Beni just spends his time finding holes to push his football down or through.
Above the arches of the piazza live a handful of nuns. Quite often in passing I see a nun shaking a rug out her window or chatting to someone in the street. I love this. There's something rather special and unique about nuns. Their complete commitment to God and the church. All the Italian nuns in this village are very old and cute and almost fall over themselves to pinch my boy's cheeks.
I am still in awe to be living in such a great spot on the planet - a place steeped in culture and tradition.
