Notte Bianco- September 22nd.
Something I don’t miss about Canada is the total lack of co-ordinated cultural events. It seems everywhere in Europe has at least one big all night culture party a year, Amsterdam has two. Rome has just one. In September. And it rains alot and hard intermittently throughout the whole night, but it still is fantastic to see that it can happen.
The evening began with Roberto Benigni doing comedy based on Dante’s Divine Comedy on the Campodoglio. The place was wicked crowded, but of course it would be, with Benigni doing hilarious historical comedy in the historical centre.
Chiara and I got into the action around 11pm with Chiara’s brother and girlfriend
