The Aristodemo's - Godfather waltz

Nov 09, 2013, 06:05 PM, Barga, Tuscany, Italy

The regulars of Aristo’s bar in Barga Vecchia during the autumn months sit outside the bar in the piazza and roast chestnuts 2 or 3 times a year. It is a time for all the families to get together and join in preparing the nuts and fire, and then roasting and eating the chestnuts around the flames to the sound of music supplied by four members of The Aristodemo’s.

… and the art?

That was supplied by the visiting artist Massimo Catalani who was in the city this weekend preparing for a large art event here in Barga in September of next year (article here) After trying his hand at roasting a pan full of chestnuts he then spent most of the evening making small drawings using wine and coffee as his colouring medium and then giving the finished drawings away to the regulars of Aristo’s bar.
