Last September we visited our friends in the north of Italy, and one day as we walked across a bridge in the town of Bassano del Grappa we heard music. Accordion music, to be exact. Maybe it’s cliche, but it made us turn to see what was going on. Shortly the accordion player was joined by a chorus of locals who, passing by on their walk home, stopped to sing along. It must have been a well-known song, because by the time I remembered to get out the camera, the accordion player was no longer visible.
I just loved the community feel to this hodge-podge group of singers, and I wish I knew what they were singing. If anyone knows, please share.
