Rioni in Piazza 2010

On September Sunday 5th the big day arrived and everybody in Greve in Chianti was ready to be amazed…

The teams has been working several months in order to conceive a proper subject depending on different skills and characters available in every team. This year the mayor did not give any subject to follow, so we had parades of different times and atmospheres.

We belong to Rione i Castelli which means the Castles as our village of Greti is surrounded by 3 castles: Verrazzano, Vicchiomaggio and Calcinaia. Guess who from Ancora del Chianti partecipated to the parade…!?! The theme was “Paris and its history” and it has been developed through the historical facts and imaginary. Starting with Victor Hugo’s novel, the Huckback of Notre Dame de Paris with Quasimodo and beautiful Esmeralda (Irene) on parade.

Then King Louis XIV and Maria Teresa of Austria arrived followed by the Courtesants of the King.

After Cardinal Richelieu and the Musketeers with mustache and sword.

The French Revolution is represented by Marianne with the French Flag, Louis XVI and Maria Antonietta who will be guillotined in the square by the revolutionaries.

Napoleon Bonaparte rides a (real) horse and his wife Josephine Bonaparte is on a litter as Canova sculpted her. Then Belle Epoque arrived with Can Can Girls, Painters and Literary Café.

In the end the Tour Eiffel arrived and everybody was impressed by the fireworks: spectacular!!!

Other themes where: Fellini Circus, Musical Grease with Danny, Sandy and their friends,  The Fab 60′s with the Beatle’s, old fashion cars, and Flower Power movement, Shreck and his friends, Mary Poppins etc.

We hope next year you will be with us in the square to admire the 2011 parade!
