A couple of weeks ago I received an email from my friend Lisa at Wanderlust Women’s Travel Dreams telling me about a tango event happening on the Amalfi Coast. Lisa asked me “pretty, pretty please with skittles on top” to do a post on the evening of tango dancing. Would I mind? Well, Lisa and I share a passion for the Amalfi Coast, but little did she know of my secret desire to learn how to play the bandoneon. While I’m not much of a dancer, I do love tango music. So I was definitely there!
The evening was cool and a breeze was blowing gently in the beautiful Piazzetta in Pontone, Scala. My videos don’t begin to capture the magic of the evening – with the seductive sound of music floating through the piazza, the rhythm of the dancers steps, the tangible allure of the tango filling the air.
Wish you were here to see this, Lisa!

SO cool. I love dancing. Alas, one more reason I wish geography would reconsider and push the coast closer to Calabria. 🙂
Ciao Cherrye! I know… wish it wasn't so far down to Calabria. Once I learn how to drive the manual transmission car here… road trip! 🙂

Looks like a scene from a romantic old movie….too bad Fellini couldn't get the lighting better. LOL
What a great evening that must have been and outside as well. Certainly not warm enough for such an evening event like that here in Northern Lazio yet 🙁
Thanks for this lovely post, Laura!! I tango, and have been fantasizing about playing tango violin too… so lovely to hear that you want to learn to play the bandoneon! You should definitely do it 🙂
Prego Lisa! Oh, I know… Fellini would have gotten the lighting much better. 🙂
Ciao LindyLouMac! It was a bit chilly for us non-dancers, but probably nice for the dancers. Warm weather is just around the corner!
Ciao Stella! Yes, my neighbors would love that! 🙂 I'm so glad you enjoyed the post!

It sounds – and looks – a wonderful evening.
Ciao Pat! I really enjoyed the music and the setting, and it seemed the dancers were having a nice time, too.
