“Cui va ‘n Palermu e ‘un vidi Cannoli, si nni parti sceccu e torna armali”
Cannoli Ospitanti in Palermo was a blast. The abundant sun, the fantastic sea view, the lovely crowd and lots of small packages of calories called granita or cannolo, all created an unforgettable experience.
Gabriele, a prime example of Sicilian hospitality, was the silent force that made everybody feel at home and taken care of.
Enjoy the photos!

We were back in Genova for the third time on the La Lanterna Tango Marathon. We just love Genova, even if this edition had somewhat less sun than the previous ones.

How we love Italy! Giovanni & Antonella invited us to the Genova “La Lanterna” marathon and it was splendid. Margaux hosted us in a little corner of heaven, so we felt very at home. It’s a pity I was getting sick, but it made me take lots more pictures, since I couldn’t really dance anyway.

What a magical weekend! We just had a fantastic 3 days in Firenze at the Florence FesTango party. Giovanni, tu sei una superstar!
The venue, the music, the food, the people and most of all, the mood. It was a wonderful bath of hugs, smiles and giggles.
And we took LOTS of pictures (4000 or so). Of which we now can show you the following selection of 400 photos! Enjoy!

If Valentine’s Day brings out the romance in people, then what better place to spend it than in Roma? We were there for the first edition of Luca Lamberti’s San Valentine Tango Marathon. An excellent choice!
3 days in the sun, in the middle of February, meeting dancers from all over Europe, chatting with friends we hadn’t seen in a while, some tourism in the incredibly beautiful Rome, Italian food and spritz. Here are the photos: Continue reading “San Valentine Marathon, Roma”
The best part of this job is all the great people you meet. We were invited to Torino by the amazing Ileana, to witness the Circuito Milonguero: not a marathon, not a festival but a series of 4 milongas in 1 weekend, a great way to get to know the local tango scene.
You can say what you want about the way they do politics, but the Italians sure know how to be hospitable and generous. We were welcomed in the home of Lorenza and Luca for the weekend and enjoyed exquisite food and conversations.
Beautiful venues, warm smiling people and great tango make it easy to take good pictures. I’m only halfway through the 3000+ pictures I took and I already like what Panni & me did.
Here’s the full album:
