Close local streets to traffic and fill them with 200 artists creating masterpieces in chalk on the pavement, and you have the setting for a traditional Italian street-painting festival.

For two days Larimer Square's annual La Piazza dell'Arte will showcase large works by professional madonnari (the name refers to the Madonna, a traditional subject), who render oversize reproductions of paintings by masters such as Raphael and Michelangelo. There are also original works by local artists, students, and amateurs.
