It was a rainy and grey Sunday in Milan, when the parade started the glorious run from Piazza Antonio Gramsci down to via Paolo Sarpi cutting all the Chinatown.
The Chinese community of Milan offered for the New Year eve the usual stunning show and thousands of Milanesi crowded along the edges of Via Sarpi to watch the parade: lanterns, dragons, dressed in traditional clothes and musicians paraded proudly and colorful in the streets of Chinatown.

Happy year of the pig to everyone!
