Event in June
Every small village throughout Italy celebrates with its own wonderful festival where all the locals attend. Tourists and visitors are always warmly welcomed to these events. During the harvest festivals the villagers tend to celebrate with their local produce, such as polenta and prosciutto, and especially wine. The rest of the events are more likely to be historical re-enactments linked to costumed cavalcades and jousting, processions, ceremonial races and competitions, elaborate costumes, singing and dancing.
