party is over - baisakhi (brescia, italy)

brescia is home of the largest sikh community in italy. in april, the city guests the procession to celebrate baisakhi, a very important religous holiday for sikh people.

it's a beautiful, enriching and colorful experience even for those italians who decide to join the event.

 

for more information see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaisakhi

 

this picture was taken at the end of the celebration. i know it's not such a good one, but i like the sweetness it evocates
