For some years, there is also in Milan the traditional pillow fighting. This year the event was held on Saturday April 13, on a beautiful spring day, in a week full of events, including the “Fuorisalone” of the Brera Design District. In the occasion, the Lomography Gallery Store Milan has organized a workshop in which I have participated, bringing with me a Canon rangefinder camera.

It was a wonderful spring day, with a pleasant outdoor temperature and a great light. The heavy rain of the beginning of April had stopped, for the return of a great sunny day; the sky was of a wonderful blue tone! The first “warriors” arrived before 15 p.m., and many of them was wearing a pajamas!

Before the beginning of the battle, someone used her pillow as an hat, in search of a shadow in a very sunny day! And it was a joy, for the first time of the year, to take off socks and shoes (like this girl) and to stay barefoot in a wonderful green and fresh grass!

These three warriors are ready for the battle. Meanwhile, someone engages a duel before the great battle, just to warm up a bit!

The “Team A” is ready for the battle, they are gathered together under the arch of peace!

The “Team B” is preparing for the challenge showing the “B-side” of their fighters!

Within few seconds, after the signal (a sound of a trumpet), the battle begins, all against all!

Someone uses the pillow as a helmet and withdraws from the battle…

In an apotheosis of smiles and pillow fights, the battle goes on for about ten minutes. At the end they are all sweaty and happy!

After the battle, someone will divide the remnants of a “combat weapon”, as a souvenir!

After the first battle, the warriors decided to take a break, posing for some photos or resting on their pillows.

Around 16 pm, the second round starts, again with pillow for everyone, smiles and the desire to stay all together!

Many have brought their pillow from home, and for those who did not have one, the organizers have arranged every things. There are lots of red and blue pillows for every boy and girl!

On these pillows it’s written: “Those who… do not use the pillows to sleep”!

At the end of the battle, the warriors posed for a souvenir photo!

A fun way to spend some time together, and a very original workshop organized by the Lomography store in Milan!
