"Festival of San Remo"
San Remo is on the Italian Riviera not far from Nice. Probably by train it is less than an hour.
Each year in San Remo there is a music competition much like American Idol. It has been around for at leat 20 years, if not more. Many famous Italian pop stars got their start there, such a Andrea Bocelli, Laura Pausini, and my favorite, Rita Forte.

This is a typical cheese stand in the big mercato in San Remo.
As you can see, I love posing by food, even raw fish. This is in the mercato in San Remo.
