Fiore conosciuto soprattutto per le mille sfumature dei tipici campi multicolore dell’Olanda, il tulipano è stato festeggiato per la prima volta a Castiglione del Lago nel 1956. La manifestazione prese il via per l’iniziativa di alcune famiglie olandesi, trasferite nella zona e dediche appunto alla coltivazione dei bulbi nei pressi del lago. Successivamente, i terreni furono destinati ad altre colture, ma la gioia e il piacere della Festa dei Tulipani è rimasta e, nonostante qualche anno di interruzione, sopravvive fino ad oggi.

Anzi, la manifestazione è man mano cresciuta e richiama oggi a Castiglione migliaia di turisti e curiosi.

E non poteva essere altrimenti, data la particolarità e il fascino del borgo che per l’occasione si presenta agli occhi dei visitatori completamente addobbato di fiori multicolori. Tulipani e petali ornano le finestre e i balconi, le vie e le piazzette… le decorazioni passano addirittura per fontane e panchine, creando uno spettacolo di colori è di rara bellezza.

 

Lo Sapevi che –> La parola Tulipano deriva dal turco «tullband», che significa copricapo o turbante, e così venivano chiamati questi fiori particolari proprio per la forma che sembravano rappresentare

L’altra grande particolarità della Festa dei Tulipani è la sfilata dei carri allegorici a tema: ognuna delle contrade e frazioni del comune si cimenta nella creazione di un proprio carro, con un’apposita giuria che decrete il carro più bello (solo un paio di anni fa ad esempio il tema scelto è stato quello dei migliori film di animazione Disney). Abbonderanno inoltre allestimenti e figure floreali, oltre a tanti eventi a tema.

Il vero protagonista resta sempre il tulipano, tutta la città sarà adornata esclusivamente di fiori e petali.

Da non perdere anche lo speciale Palio del Tulipano: le contrade o frazioni si sfideranno in una spericolata gara tra squadre, che correranno sollevando e portando a spalla la propria “barella”, un contenitore con quattro stanghe a forma – ovviamente – di tulipano.

Ricordiamo poi che, alle iniziative che ruotano intorno all’universo dei tulipani, si aggiunge un affascinante Corteo Storico in costume rinascimentale, ispirato al periodo di massimo splendore della storia di Castiglione del Lago. Senza dimenticare i giochi in costume e l’apertura delle taverne tipiche, dove gustare i sapori più genuini della cucina tradizionale dell’Umbria.
