San Vigilio is an idyllic mountain village situated in The Dolomites, near Brunico (Bruneck) and Bolzano, South Tyrol. It was delighted to welcome for a concert three members of the legendary band Dire Straits - John Illsley, Alan Clark and Chris White - who played on the snowbound peak Piz De Plaies, above the small winter resort. The gig was open-air and the weather was quite cold but it didn't stop thousands of people to come and enjoy the amazing performance of these marvellous guys in this white December midday. They were incredibly good playing more than two hours the instruments with their frozen fingers and singing so many of the favoutite Dire Straits songs. In return the audience was warm and cheerful. In the end there were so many happy and smiling faces.
