The celebrations of the Holy Week in Iglesias, as in the rest of Sardinia, date back to the end of the seventeenth century and are deeply affected by Spanish domination in the country. Starting from the name of the city - Iglesias - which means "Churches", passing through the Gothic vaults of the Cathedral of Santa Chiara, up to its oldest association, the Arciconfraternita del Santo Monte, organizer of religious events, the influence Spanish is everywhere alive.In particular, the Archconfraternity... continue reading

I know it is not the time, but frankly, I had no time to post them when it was the right moment.In the village I come from, people use to sacrifice pigs before Christmas and prepare a lot of traditional specialties with pork. Here are a few photos of how it starts, I mean the roasting and slicing after the sacrifice. I hope I will not be criticised by animals protectors or such before I tell you the animals are stunned before the sacrifice and they get a quick and relatively painless death. It'... continue reading

At the end of the last month (on 27th October 2012) I was asked to drive someone at a fair, 50 km away from my town. He told me the traditional craftsmen from Slatina will be there. For me, it is always a joy to meet this people. But, usually, at this fairs nothing especially happens. Every participant is trying to sell the products of their work, but often this is a hard endeavor. Not many are interested in traditional things.As a young boy, I loved to eat in clay bowls and plates. Nowadays,... continue reading
One of my favorite photographic themes is Romanian traditions. And when I say this, I mean traditional clothing, traditional crafts, traditional houses and the way the romanian peasants lived their life.One of the most remarkable facts is the romanian peasant was always very inventive.

Unable to buy anything, in many cases bound to the land they worked, the romanian peasant was forced to find ways to improve the quality of life or at... continue reading

Spring is the perfect season to go to Japan... Cherry blossoms, a few people, a lot of temples to visit!Tokyo is perfect if you want to walk a lot. Especially during night you can see the Sensoji (Asakusa Kannon Temple) with wonderful artificial light.
