“Medieval August” Festival comes back from the Past in Ventimiglia, Liguria

The “Medieval August” Festival was born in 1974 in Ventimiglia (Region of Liguria). Every year, between July and August, history turns into the protagonist of Ventimiglia and such an old and lovely town comes back to its mysterious atmosphere of the past.

The town of Ventimiglia magically gets crowded with people wearing medieval clothing, such as soldiers, ladies, knights, aristocrats and plebeians who challenge each other in competitions in the historical centre, a perfect background for such an event. Narrow street, lovely squares, narrow passages

19th Rome Marathon


On March 17th, a lot of people will run in the magnificent streets of Rome on the occasion of 19th edition of the ACEA Rome Marathon, which this year adopted the UNAR(National Anti-Racial Discrimination, Ministry for Equal Opportunities) slogan: “Ti si apre un mondo, chiudi al razzismo” (A new world opens up to you, close the door on racism”).

Fourteen thousands athletes will compete in the streets of Rome, 6 of whom are from abroad. Rome will be invaded by marathoners from all over the world, and beyond. Besides the marathon, Rome will be in the spotlight of the world for the possible election of the new Pope. In addition, on March 17th, the anniversary of the Union of Italy will be celebrated with a ceremony at the Altare della Patria.

Epiphany 2013 in the Region of Liguria

Dear children, are you ready for hanging your socks waiting for Befana, the old, kind woman who brings sweeties and candies? Or maybe, if you’ve been naughty kids last year, she could bring coal to you, as tradition says…

It is said that on every 6th January, the Befana arrives riding her broomstick and bringing many delicious things to the children (just like Santa Claus!). In Italy, it is an old tradition and this day is celebrated for remembering the arrival of the Three Wise Men to visit Baby Jesus or, for the non-believers, the coming of Befana.

What’s up in Liguria on Epiphany Day? In Liguria visitors can find many events and celebrations in different cities, concerts, bonfires, exhibitions and street markets, but also many “Befana Parties” or even many Miss modern Befana Competitions.

Here are some of the major events in Liguria for celebrating Epiphany 2013:
