Festa De Le Cove... harvest festival Italian style... | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

There are an inordinate number of festas (street parties/festivals) and sagras (usually to do with eating) happening all over Italy for most of the summer months. Wherever you go there will be people eating, dancing and drinking in small towns and villages all of them offering something traditional and steeped in history. In Petritoli we have several of these and the biggest is the Festa De Le Cove. It’s a harvest festival celebration of sorts. A whole weekend of fun. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Great article, here one good highlight: "The town is beautifully decorated and each year there’s a different theme, this year it was poppies and sunflowers. At the roundabouts and road junctions they put life size dummies made of straw"

There will be a historical parade with the "Offerta dei Ceri" (ceri = big candles) to the patron saint.

The Palio dei Castelli is a combination of several historical medieval games such as tug-of-war, race of the Towers, archery, ability games, etc.

The big event is represented by the race where teams will carry huge models of tower of castles representing their villages (Rocchetta, Colleluce, Serralta, Taccoli and Cesolo) and “Rioni” (town quarters: Settempeda, Castello, di Contro).

The team that gets the highest score in every game wins the Palio dei Castelli. Winners, usually, celebrate their victory all night long.

The main aim of the festival is to provide, in a comfortable environment of rare beauty, a unitary and highly theoretical and practical training in relation to the practice of Frame Drums, thanks to a close knit team of teachers known internationally for the quality of their artistic proposal. 
A true "full immersion", in the splendor of the hills of the Marche, accompanied by good food and local wine.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Frame Drums Italy is an International Festival born with the aim of providing its participants a broad view on the study and practice of frame drums in relation to both the traditional and modern musical languages in which they are applied. In addition to this, the Festival features some high-interest activities for both the performers and teachers wishing to broaden their instruments possibilities, such as the scenical use of drums in theatrical settings as well as their use in music-therapy. All of this will take place for four days in the beautiful italian countryside of Marche, more precisely in the charming medieval town of Montelparo, where a nice ex-monastery will host the event as usual.
