La sera che siamo arrivati nel bel borgo toscano di , le piazzette e le vie fremevano per la partenza della tipica festa rinascimentale che ha luogo ogni anno.

The evening we arrived in Pitigliano ( Tuscany) , all the little village was busy for the Renaissance festival.
There is this party each year.

I vari figuranti - tutti in costume - allietano con danze.
La famosa danza dei nobili si sposta da piazza in piazza per poter permettere a tutti di assistere allo spettacolo. Guarda che cosa succede durante la danza dei nobili

There are many persons with traditional dresses that dance.
Thera also is the dance of the nobles that move in the each main squares of the villages. Look what happens during the dance of the nobles

Quando incomincia a calare la notte i toni si fanno più grotteschi: scompaiono i giochi per bambini , le danze composte dei figuranti terminano, i tamburi della banda che creavano un ritmo continuo si azzittiscono.

When the night is coming, all becomes more grotesque .
All the plays for babies disappear.
The nobles don't dance anymore.
The band with the drums stop

Appaiono suoni più gotici.

All the sounds are more Gothic.

Il gruppo chiamato le muse del diavolo dal castello incomincia a girare per le vie con giocolieri e mangiafuoco, con maschere da lupo e trucchi tribali.
Il suono dei tamburi è più gotico, più penetrante.

The group called the muse of the devil moves from the castle to stroll around all the narrow streets in the village with jugglers .
All dress the masks on their faces - someone like the wolf , some others have tribal makeup. The drums create more tribal sounds, more penetrating

Vuoi vedere come stavo cadendo dalle scale?

Do you want to see how I was almost fallen from the steps?

Seguiamo i giocolieri!!!

Following the jugglers

Una danzatrice del ventre con una pellicciotto che le copre le spalle segue il ritmo dei tamburi e delle cornamuse.

A belly dancer with a fur coat on her shoulders follows the rhythm of drums and the bagpipes.

Il suono rimbomba maggiormente nel silenzio che cala: tutto sembra essere irreale.

There is the sound of the drums that break the silence. It seems unreal

Siamo avvolti dalla festa, dal fuoco che si sprigiona in aria dai mangiafuoco: sembra di essere in un paesaggio irreale eppure siamo qui nella festa rinascimentale di Pitigliano.

All around us there is the party, the fire of the jugglers. It seems to be in an unreal village but we are here in the Renaissance festival in Pitigliano

Pian piano le vie si svuotano e anche le Muse del diavolo fermano i loro tamburi e le loro cornamuse.
Tutto è silenzio, buio...ma domani ah sì domani torneranno i tamburelli e sarà ancora festa nel paese del tufo!

The streets become empty more and more. The group called muse del diavolo don't play anymore their drums .

Don't worry. Tommorrow the sound of the drum will come again and the festival there will be again !
