If You Had Been Here This Weekend...

If you had been fortunate enough to be in Stresa this past weekend you would have had the opportunity to do, among other things, the following:

You could have heard the Michael Nyman Band at the Palazzo dei Congressi, Saturday at 5 pm, when the celebrated pianist and composer performed Draughtsman’s Contract, Prospero’s Books, Memorial, The Piano, and Mozart 252 as part of the Settimane dei Musicale, the Stresa Festival.

Or...
You could have walked along the lungolago on Sunday, trying and buying foods of the region, during the Arti e Sapori tra Monti e Lago festival, Arts and Flavors Between Mountains and Lake. While strolling you would have tasted cheeses, salamis, honey, olive oils, and other products typically from the area. Yes.. there was wine too...

Or...You could have watched the spectacle in Piazza Marconi on Saturday morning, when, for the first time, the Festa della Polizia di Stato, the Police of the VCO Territory, gave both residents and tourists a chance to see their uniforms, their vehicles, and their machinery up close, and the opportunity to thank them for their constant vigilance and protection.

Or...


Not forgetting the other Festa this weekend, la Festa della Mamma, Mother's Day, you could have found Mom a gift at the arts part of the Arti e Sapori tra Monti e Lago fair, where artists and craftspeople from the region sold handmade jewelry, dolls, ceramics, paintings, and all manner of artworks.

And that's just a portion of what was happening in this one little town, on this one weekend. And if you weren't here, don't worry, next weekend the Israeli Philharmonic Brass Quintet performs at Villa Pallavicino, Eric Dalest will give an organ concert at the Chiesa Sant'Ambrosio, and the Giardino Botanico Alpinia has two days of special exhibits and programs planned.
