Here are pictures of some of the activity in the "giardino" today.
Men hanging out with a few beers.
Boys playing in the drinking fountain.
In the foreground are two senior citizens (neighbors from our apartment building) who have just finished a slice of pizza and some beer. They are watching people from a younger generation gather around a laptop computer.
These women are walking through the "giardino"
on their way home after the evening Mass.
Today, there was a "festa" commemorating the 30th anniversary of the enactment of laws abolishing the old lunatic asylums in Italy.
The picture above shows a "manicomio," or mental hospital of the past. Below are drawings of the new style of group homes and activity centers for adults with special needs.
There was music and dancing...
and fun was had by people of all ages.
