if you've not yet visited Greetz from Tiz, the marvelous blog of one fabulous young woman in Italy, then by all means do so. i was over there today when i read this post about the Summer Jamboree in Senigallia, Italy.


apparently, Senigallia revisits 1950s America during this festival in Piazza del Duca square, with more than 30 free concerts and 100 artists, dance classes and a huge Hawaiian-style party on the beach! even Dita attends!



had anyone heard of this before? i certainly hadn't, and i'm pretty frickin' excited about it! a big 50s festival? and in Italy?! yes please. so go check out the photos Tiz has posted, and if you can read Italian, have a look at this blog.

I live just 20 minutes away from Senigallia and the Jamboree is great indeed! It's becoming really popular internationally too and two year ago one of the guests was Dita Von Teese...
I can't wait! You should definitely come, I'm sure you would love both the festival and the town.

First off all, yes that looks so fun and I would love to go, we need one in the states!

But moreover that shot of the gal in the plaid with the plaid hankerchief in her hair is somewhat amazing.

Oh my stars, as soon as I read this post just now I rushed over to ask me husband - who's from Italy - if he had ever heard of this and, just as I hadn't, neither had he! It looks flat out amazing though and I think it would be so incredibly awesome to attend!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this festival to my attention! I think I've got a new dream vacation! :D


Oodles if hugs,
♥ Jessica
