• Short Summary

    Crowds watch a strange ceremony in Naples, Italy - they are joined by Crown Prince Umberto.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Nola, Naples. 'The Feast of the Lilies'. The Prince & Princess of Piedmont - & enormous crowd - take part in Italy's popular & historical ceremony."

    Nola, Naples, Italy.

    High angle shot of crowd gathered in square. Some people are dancing in circles.

    Closer shot - some strange festival is going on where groups of people are carrying wooden floats with large structures built high upon them. Also being carried are bands of musicians.

    More shots of the structures being carried - they are very tall and thin towers and are decorated with religious imagery.

    The Prince of Piedmont (Crown Prince Umberto) and the Princess are gathered with others on the balcony of one of the buildings on the square. Several of the tower-like structures are paraded before them.

    Another high angle shot of the square showing the towers being moved around. This is a very odd ceremony.
