A really ancient feast there will be in San Pellegrino, small town near to Gualdo Tadino.

The habitants of the town break down the largest poplar of the area, and they transport it in the center. Then, they lift it during the ceremonial of the so-called "raised". It is a delicate and emotional moment where, with a total silence, the poplar will be raised with an accurate scales and chords game. Fireworks and "Raised of May" are planned on Sunday 30th April, while every day there will be events and gastronomic stands.
