Apparently huge things are not just a mid-western fascination.  Here in San Giovanni Valdarno, Arezzo province, Italy there is a festa going on.  It is a celebration of many things, food predominantly, all kinds of local salamis, porchetta, paninni, local cheeses, cookies, nuts as well as handmade items, antiques, some general flea market stuff, a small midway with cotton candy and bumper cars.  Amidst it all there are a few big things I thought you would enjoy seeing.  Oh yeah, the religious reason for this celebration is so people can ask forgiveness for their sins…gluttony perhaps???   Check out a couple more photos of BIG stuff on my flickr.  Buonanotte!!!
