    Been at an exhibition in Leghorn about the history of the Communist Party in Italy (which was quite big around here until it dissolved in 1991 to be replaced by various centre-left parties).

    The most interesting part was in the way people looked at the images, many finding in the old images relatives, friends or even their younger self on either side of the barricade.

    The notice on the right side is for a 1952 beauty contest organized by the local communist organization....

    Alf, this must have been so interesting - the exhibition and the whole scene going on! Wish I could visit - and read Italian. Thanks so much for these and for the storyline.:thumbup:
