Description

Castiglione del Lago (PG), on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, is ready to host, from April 12th to 15th, 2012 and for the 46th time, the Festa del Tulipano (Tulip Festival).

 

The origins of this event sank in 1956: some Dutch families had purchased lands near the lake to grow tulip bulbs. And they used to celebrate the arrival of spring decorating windows, balconies or small floats with flower petals. Soon the whole country took up this tradition.

Despite today's campaigns are intended for other crops, the spirit and the party remained, with streets and squares decorated, the bands, the Historical parades inspired by the 1500's (when Castiglione del Lago was under the Marquis Ascanio della Corgna, ed), parades of floats (this year's theme is "The ancient civilizations”), the stalls of local products. Without forgetting the “Palio del Tulipano”, match between the 4 districts of the town (Castello, Fontivegge, Mulino e Prati) in a race where 4 “barellieri” ("stretcher-bearers") of each district will transport a container with 4 poles, the “barella” ("stretcher") for a predetermined path. And the 15th Fiera del Tulipano (Tulip Fair).
