Par Tot Parade 2011 (6) Bologna Image Archives Kalpana Image Archives - Italy

Bologna's Par Tot parade has been one of my favourite cultural events in the city, that marks the starting of summer festival. In 2011, Par Tot started with a show in the city's central square, Piazza Maggiore. It was an incredible show, a never ending display of people, costumes, make-ups, dances, etc. I was exhausted from clicking pictures and sitting on the ground was very tough for my hips and knees. These images give just a glimpse of the colours, madness and fun.

This album has images of Brazilian Samba dancers with their shimmering and glittering costumes and then it has images of people in green costumes and make up. I really loved the persons who had green and black body paints.

Bologna university gets lot of students from other parts of Italy and from other countries. These students are the most active participants of Par Tot but the participation is open to anyone who desires, as long as you accept to be part of one of the free preparation workshops, that start around April. Since 2009, Par Tot parade is held in June, every two years. Last two parades were in 2009 and 2011, so next ones should be in 2013, 2015 and so on.
