Back in June, Piazza Salvo Salvi in Barga Vecchia was filled with people enjoying the first of series of events which took place all through the summer season – the Aristo’s Corner Festival (article here)
Organised by the dynamic crew at the Da Aristo bar the opening concert was by the house band, The Aristodemos who as usual performed their mix of Italian swing.
The Aristo’s Corner Festival had as it main aim to promote new and emerging young talent and apart from the ageing and slightly worn members of the Aristodemos, the assembled crowds during the summer got precisely that as a succession of new musicians to Barga performed in the piazza to large crowds.
This evening The Aristodemos were back to bring the Festival to close and once again the piazza was filled with people all enjoying their particular kind of Italian swing – this time with the added ingredient of freshly roasted chestnuts prepared on two foes set up outside the bar.
