A mild and lovely Thursday evening. The little piazza located
in the historic village centre of Lana is filled with warm lights.
The quiet rush of the fountain is accompanied by live music from
a band. People sit outside, enjoying their Hugo and Veneziano
drinks, while others stroll along the small market stalls and food
stands. Some children have started dancing to the music. The air is filled with the flavours of culinary delights. Italian atmosphere –
right in the heart of the Alps.
Lana’s “Long Thursdays Nights
” held from June to August are filled with all kinds of events and celebrations, because “the later
the evening, the younger the night”: Engaging dance shows, flea
markets, great drinks and numerous traditional games and activities
for kids draw large crowds to the village square.
Yet there is more to the special atmosphere of Lana’s “Long Thursdays”
than just great food and entertainment. The hustle and
bustle of the day’s business in shops and firms dies down, and
(window) shopping becomes a whole new and relaxing holiday
experience at this time of night. This is especially true for the
posh shoe stores like Calceus or the little In Piazza store
l ocated right across the little fountain – on just 24 square metres,
customers find a truly unique atmosphere.
