• Short Summary

    A celebration of the grape harvest in Italy leads to lots of wine being given away.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Marino, Nr Rome. Unique Harvest festival. Fountains flow with wine for all at annual 'Feast of the Grapes.'"

    Marino, Near Rome, Italy.

    Crowds fill decorated streets of town.

    An ornate statue of the Virgin Mary is paraded around the town square.

    A group of children stand quietly - they are all dressed in fancy dress costumes as angels. Most of them are carrying grapes.

    A vast vat has been erected and people crowd round it. Closer shots of people at foot of vat. Paper cups of wine are being filled and handed out to the queuing people.

    N.B. This story is the same as the one in 30/40 - according to the issue sheet it appears to have gone out in both issues.
