20 Jun International street buskers festival in Pennabilli, Italy
While in Rimini, Italy, I took a short break from lounging on the beach and eating piatini (flatbread sandwiches which reminded me a lot of quesadillas) and spent a day in the Emilia-Romagna hinterland—the land behind the sea. A nearby city, Pennabili, was hosing an International Festival of Street Art called “Artisti in Piazza.”
The annual street art festival (since 1997) is a 5-day festival with over 200 artists from around the world. I was just there for a single afternoon and evening and saw more than a handful of performances. With performers from Japan, England, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Cuba and the U.S. there was a huge diversity of talent.
