Fresh Paint


I saw this warning sign  hanging on a shop: “pittura fresca” = fresh paint!

Why should this sign interest me (except for the fact that I don’t want to rub up against it in my white pants?)

Pitura Freska (spelled a bit differently in Venetian dialect) was a dynamic, fun, unique Venetian band that formed in the late 90s. They, like the playwright Carlo Goldoni, were especially loved by Venetians because they sang in dialect. They blended ska and reggae rhythms into their pop songs and sang about local issues and places.

The Festa di San Giacomo dell’Orio begins next week–and I’ll be in Venice for it! I’m looking forward to bopping in the campo to the Pitura Freska cover band and the lead singer’s latest band!

    Oh, you’re so lucky to see and hear Pitura Freska! I’ve only seen some of their fun offerings online. Do they have any connection with Ska-J?

    Have fun. 🙂
