The custom, handed down from one generation to the next, was enriched over time by innumerable variations. The legend tells that a farmer, in his way to Matera, took a young lady in his cart.

The epidemic spread rapidly throughout the city and was difficult to control due to the precarious conditions in which the people lived and to a high density of population.   INTERESTING FACT: One of the victims of the 1576 epidemic was the painter Titian (Tiziano Vecellio).

The saint is celebrated in Catania twice a year – the feast held in February commemorates the martyrdom of the Saint, while the Summer Feast of Saint Agatha, held on August 17, celebrates the return of her remains to Catania, after 86 years in which the relics were kept in Constantinople.

After two years in which the Carnival was held online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that the 2023 edition of the festival will return to its pre-pandemic glory, and we will be able to admire once again on the streets of Venice the wonderful masks and costumes worn by thousands of people coming from all over the world.   SHORT HISTORY The first information about the Venetian Carnival dates back to 1094, when the word carnevale was mentioned for the first time in a document signed by the Doge Vitale Faliero. Then, the carnival was an event dedicated in particular to people from the lower classes, who, through the anonymity guaranteed by masks, could relate with the nobility of the time. The first official document declaring the Venice Carnival a public holiday dates back to 1296, when the Senate of the Venetian Republic set it before Lent. Starting with 1296, for the next few centuries, the Carnival lasted six weeks, usually between December 26 and Ash Wednesday. During the 18th century, the Carnival of Venice Read more [...]

The parts challenge each other for the conquest of Palio, through parades in medieval costumes, reenactment of medieval life and musical performances. A jury, composed of internationally renowned experts (a historian, a musicologist and an entertainment personality), choose the winner of each edition.   SHORT HISTORY The origins of Calendimaggio are lost in time. Most likely, the festival tried to revive ancient pagan customs that celebrated the return of spring and the renewal of the cycle of life. The ancient chronicles tell us that Assisi, at the beginning of the 14th century, reached its maximum splendor, a fact confirmed by the expansion of its walls, its numerous palaces and churches, the presence of the painters Giotto, Cimabue, Simone Martini, the Lorenzetti brothers… At the same time, the city was divided in two parts – Parte Read more [...]

The Ascension Day Feast is, without doubt, one of the most anticipated and appreciated events in the Venetian calendar, not only by locals, but also by tourists.   SHORT HISTORY Festa della Sensa was born on the day of the Ascension of Christ, to commemorate two very important moments in the history of Venice.
