These girls played as ancient Roman dancers just at the entrance of the ruins. Lovely colours and moves.
I supposed they were celebrating some rituals to praise nature and gods.
Indeed the afternoon was warm and sunny, the ritual worked !
Congratulation to the dancers from the Gruppo Danze Antiche, Italy – directed by Silvia Bellinello Melotto: they were one of the highlights of this Romerfest 2013.
Pictures shot with D800 and 70-200 VR-II
The festival was filled with gladiators, Roman soldiers, Roman knights, belly dancers, Barbarians and slaves … soon all online! In the meantime click to magnify the pictures of these dancing priestesses.
