Children in Le Marche receive

The date - 6 January 2008; the place - outside the 'Bar dei Personaggi' in Sant'Angelo, Le Marche, Italy. The occasion - La Befana, an ancient tradition where a character gives presents to children on the Feast of the Epiphany. In modern times, as you can see, the village organises a colourful and public ceremony - the gentleman on the left with the microphone is the 'Master of Ceremonies' while La Befana waits patiently to give a present from the large box behind her.
