Italian Feast

They are getting ready to prepare the giglio, a tall structure that is lifted and carried throughout the neighborhood of North Brooklyn around Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish. It's an annual event that mimics on a smaller scale the event held in Noto, Italy. It's a fun event that is very popular. This image dates from 1986 when I was  doing a project on Italian feasts in the New York area for an Italian client.
