Come in tutto il mondo, anche in Umbria si festeggia l’entrata della nuova stagione con celebrazioni di tutti i tipi, dalle più tradizionali alle più creative.

Una delle feste più caratteristiche che evocano la primavera è sicuramente la Festa del Tulipano, che dal 9 al 13 aprile 2014 colorerà il centro storico di Castiglione del Lago con un programma ricco di iniziative, tra cui gli originali carri allegorici addobbati con i tulipani e le taverne locali con menù a base di prodotti tipici.

Questa particolare celebrazione trae origine dall’usanza di alcune famiglie olandesi che si trasferirono nella cittadina umbra negli anni ’90 per coltivare il tulipano e che, all’arrivo dei primi mesi caldi, avevano l’abitudine di addobbare le case, i balconi ed i carri con i primi bulbi di tulipano appena spuntati.

Nonostante nel tempo la coltivazione del tulipano sia stata abbandonata, ancora oggi si celebra questa particolare festa come buon auspicio per l’entrata della nuova stagione.

Quest’anno, in occasione del 60esimo anniversario della Rai, il consiglio dell’associazione Pro Castiglione ha scelto un tema che farà sognare i giovani e, soprattutto, i meno giovani: Carosello, la popolarissima trasmissione che tutti i bambini italiani aspettavano prima di andare a letto dal 1957 al 1977.

Le contrade avranno tutte un loro tema, il Castello è abbinato a Calimero, la contrada Mulino realizzerà il suo carro con Jo Condor, Fontivegge si cimenterà con Carmencita, Piana è con l’Omino coi Baffi, la contrada Prati con Salomone, pirata pacioccone.

Like in the rest of world, also Umbria celebrates the entry of the new season with celebrations of all kinds, from the most traditional to the most creative.

One of the most characteristic festivals that evoke spring is definitely the Tulip Festival, April 9 to 13 that will color the historic center of Castiglione del Lago with a rich program of initiatives, including the traditional parades of allegorical floats decorated with tulips and local tavernas with menus based on local produce.

This particular celebration originates from the custom of some Dutch families who moved in the Umbrian town in the 90s to grow tulip. On arrival of the first warm months, they used to decorate the houses, balconies and wagons with the first tulip bulbs just sprung up. Although over time the cultivation of the tulip has been abandoned, still this particular holiday is celebrated as a good omen for the coming of the new season.

This year, for the 60th anniversary of RAI, the association Pro Castiglione has chosen a theme that make you dream young, and especially the less young: Carousel, the popular Italian transmission that all children waited before going to bed since 1957 to 1977.
