The Orient Festival and Il Mondo Che Vorrei in Rome

Festival-dellOriente-RomaEuropeans have always been fascinated by the Orient, a far-away, mysterious and magic part of the world to our eyes. If you’re in Rome at the end of May, you’ll finally have the opportunity to satisfy your curiosity with the oncoming Orient Festival which is the biggest world festival on this theme with its 40.000 square meters area.

In the same time in Fiera Roma will occur the fair “Il Mondo Che Vorrei” (The World I’d like). The two events are connected, that’s why you’ll be able to enter both with the same ticket.

The Orient Festival is dedicated to cultures and traditions of the numerous countries attending, among them China, Japan, Korea, Tibet, India or Thailand. The programme is really complete with events of every kind like dance, music and martial arts performances, traditional ceremonies, exhibitions, workshops, food and drink tasting, display of bio natural disciplines or meditation and, obviously, many markets so you can bring typical artisan products at home.

The “Infiorata di Noto” in Sicily

infiorata-di-notoThe city of Noto (or Nuoto in Sicilian dialect), in the province of Syracuse, is a treasure of Sicily. It’s in fact called “the Baroque Capital” because of its beautiful monuments: the Basilica di San Nicolò and other numerous churches; its public and private palaces like the Palazzo Ducezio or the Palazzo Nicolaci and many others. The city centre of Noto recently earned the title of UNESCO world heritage site thanks to its “stone garden”.

Each year, on the third Sunday of May, the city gets coloured by flowers during the Infiorata di Noto. This event takes place Friday 16, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 but they are many other shows organised before and after the Infiorata, from April until June.

The May of Monuments Festival offers the opportunity to discover true treasures safeguarded there. The festival reaches this year its 20th edition with the theme “Neapolitan stories and legends” taken from a book by the philosopher and writer Benedetto Croce who Naples was the adoptive city.
