    As you might remember I live in an area somewhat focused on parts of its recent past, daily dealing with its consequences. And sometimes, it's just fun -when you are not the one wearing layers of wool with 35°C..

    So I head eastwards to nearby Prato where the evening celebration is about to begin. Here's one guest getting ready.

    History is not for everyone

    But some people seem to be born to live it

    Then they get serious

    And it begins.

    Having extensive visual documentation helps when you need recreating, having original pieces to copy even more.

    Some people are more serious at this.
