Cannara is an Italian town of 4,272 inhabitants in the province of Perugia.
Lovely town of medieval style comes alive on the feast of Corpus Christi: for more than 50 years The Flower Festival takes place: in the night across the country runs the floral carpets on which the procession will pass the next day with the Body of Christ.
Another important moment in the life of the city is the onion festival, squares, streets courtyards of ancient buildings are transformed into markets and open-air restaurants and the quiet town comes alive with nightlife.
It is located on the left bank of the river Mouse centrally located in the Umbrian Valley, in an area formerly lake, known to the Romans as "Lacus Umber". Cannock derives its name from "cane", aquatic plant still lingering, and in ancient times it was the center of a marshy area.
Born as a castle well fortified with high walls and towers, during the eleventh century and became common during the thirteenth century. Threatened by the expansionism of the nearby Assisi, in 1291 she began to Perugia, in exchange for protection. In 1424 it became a fief of the powerful Baglioni family from Perugia, who held it under their rule until 1648, when he dies Malatesta V, the last descendant of that branch.
Since then, and until the Unification of Italy (1861), belonged to the Papal States.

A very nice street view with a good atmosphere and lots of details to watch. In spite of the shade covering all of the street there is a good clarity.

I like the atmosphere of the narrow streets. When there's an open air selling event, the mood is even better. Well taken scene, have a good evening.

un vicolo bellissimo con ampio interesse sia nell' architettura che nella gente e nei dettagli della vita quotidiana. Mi piace molto la prospettiva curvante e le tante finestre che la seguono. La sfida dell' illuminazione fu grandissima ma hai fatto un ottimo lavoro. La graduazione della luce e delle tonalita' naturali e caratteristiche e' superba. L' atmosfera e' tranquila, il ritmo della vita molto lento. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona notte,

All old towns in the world are similar but all of them have specific beauty and charm what we can see in your work. Similar architecture, similar narrows streets. here it's almost like Warsaw Old Town but here I can see more market stalls.
Excelent photo showing the old town at the evening. TFS
All the best my Friend!

Your specialite' after the butterflies: small allies in small towns in Itlia.
Fine down the street scene, with the old lady walked by her son (probably so), looking at the art-elements on display along.
A photojob well done. Salute.

Excellent shadow detail despite the lack of sunlight, which has given a soft even, diffused light throughout. The people animate the scene & provide scale. Good sharpness and the curving street adds both perspective and lead in lines. Tfs!

Street vendors seems to be everywhere but then street merchants has been around since the beginning of mankind. Nice capture with good lighting and good details. Well done, tfs.

Ciao caro Silvio,
A lovely view of this narrow cobbled street brought alive by the people and the presence of stalls bedecked with trinkets and jewellery. The light on the cobbled pavement and the multicoloured walls is divine and your composition is excellent too, the curvature of the street drawing the eye well into the frame.
Lovely light and soft colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness - all shown to better effect in the larger version as seen on "beta" TE.
