Festino di Santa Rosalia – Trilogy
The most ancient “Baroque Festival” in the Mediterranean, to commemorate the liberation of Palermo from the plague following the discovery of the remains of the Palermo virgin-saint, Rosalia. Every year the festival re-enacts the plague and the city’s salvation showing the saint, the miracle and the angel in a open-air production on the night of the 14 July that crosses the whole city from the Norman Palace to the sea. Three years of Palermo on show. Three years of a different Festival. Three years of a cultural project designed for the city. An immense effort to give enormous joy. Hundreds of artists from all over Europe. Boats, flaming towers, magnificent floats, curtains of water and a giant firework display to celebrate the city of Palermo, with more than 500,000 participants.
