JAZZIT FEST 2015

Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Wonderful location, good food, fantastic music. A sustainable festival based on crowdfunding.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Do you need any help? I asked him. Nope, he answered. I am strong, I can bear this on my own.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The Town Crier. He just wandered around, sang songs in his old dialect, while people stared speachless.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | There were no chairs, but people had decided to stay and listen to the music. So the ground was sweet to sit on.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | They're arriving, she thought. She was curious to see their faces, to hear their languages. That was a very quiet village, and there was never so much people at once to see.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | I like contrasts. Like that between the picture on the wall, the new hanging on the medieval stone. The old being translated and interpreted by the new.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Walking around those small streets was like jumping in a past far away.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | And then the silence came back, and thinking about all that life which was just there few minutes before, was an uneasy feeling.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | There was a heavy air, in the church, but the music flew away just as light as a whisper.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | In the church. In the silence. You had just one choice. Dream.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | It was as her red hair was burning.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The old monastery was echoing with music.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | I wonder what the nuns would have said, if they had still been living there..


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Not the meditative silence the nuns were used too, obviously.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Look at the sky - through the glossy net.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The little square was filled up with people, and some more were at the windows.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | I must see, I was very impressed by the lights. They gave life to the music, in a well balanced yet smooth way.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Just look at the contrast in the nuances of those colors. It's like even the sky will cooperate to create that symphony of nuances.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | He was slowly shutting down the improvised taverna, taking the few tables and chairs from the street back inside again.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Can I try?


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Volunteers, the heart of the festival.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | I've got a good place, he said. But you can't see any of the show from the street, I answered. Who's told you that's the show I want to see? I like watching at people.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Your dog has eyes of two different colors, I said. I know. And you know what? He can see both good and evil in people.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Rocking the jazz festival, hum? Not bad.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Say hello to the girls.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Just another narrow, dark alley.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | They had that special glance only something special has. They smiled and smelled good.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Yes, her voice was clear. The nuns would have thought she had the voice of an angel.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The farm was on a green hill, and I suddenly felt I was home.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | And then in the crypt, a band was playing. The didjeridoo ran after the guitar, and the other way around.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The graffiti.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | They were making food just as they used to do many years ago.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | He invited us home. He showed us the big nativity he had set up, the he offered some small cake. These use to stay outside on the balcony, he said when he insisted to show us his plants. I've taken them inside to inspire my guests. Please, remember to sign the book.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Just after sunset, when colors embraced each other in a neverending swirl.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The tall man with the hat went around, talking to everyone who would answer to him. He offered us bread and wine, played music for us. Sang loud while he went his way. And then from the stage, he told us ancient histories, in his incomprehensible language.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Bittersweet harmony.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Because limits are just and only in your head, you know.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Can I sit here? Just here?


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Swing it on, babe!


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | From the monastery one just had to watch outside, at all that life down there.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | She had to watch us, she had to follow with her eyes the slowly moving serpent of people. And then she smiled.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Oh yeah, the saxophone screams in your ears, and touches your soul.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Playing, or resting. Listening to the music or whispering to the drums. Unsure.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | His finger ran quick, not a sign of fatigue to spot.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Outside the church it seems to be in a concert hall, the walls making a perfect arena to echo the sounds.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Remembering someone loved.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Find your way.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Listen to this.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Red hot young jazzists.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Strike a pose.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The saxophone, yeah.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | While the grown ups do grown up things, we dance.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Look what I've got here.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | While the grown ups do grown ups stuff, we run.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Outside the farm, enjoying the shadow.


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | Did the horses like jazz?


Jazzit Fest 2015
Jazzit Fest 2015 | The landscape was just breathtaking. Nature in the land between Toscana and Roma is just unique.
