At this Christmas season Bolzano is like a circus.

In the center of Bolzano we see in this holiday season many street performers and beggars who ask for some money.


  1. It seems to be the same scenario in most big cities Karl, well caught.

  2. That is a wide variety busking!

  3. What wonderful photos! We just don't have that sort of thing here. We have beggars, but they stand at busy street corners holding up signs saying they need food and they're out of a job and they love Jesus and God Bless!

    That first photo is dynamic. Looks like it might be a skeleton in there.

  4. Circus -is perhaps the right word.
    Interesting is perhaps another?

  5. Nice portraits! I wonder what they do the rest of the year...

  6. At least the buskers are kind of entertaining. I have read that many beggars make very good money pretending to be destitute. I never give money to beggars because I don't know who is really in need. Instead, I make donations to social service agencies and trust that they have a better ability to spend the money wisely.
