Festivals and Special Events
As well as stunning scenery, sunshine, good food and warm hospitality there
are a couple of times in the year when Lunigiana is particularly worth visiting.
Christmas in Italy is of course
a special time and nowhere more so than in Lunigiana. Many of the old traditions
survive and in some towns and villages such as Equi Terme local people still
take part in Nativity plays.
Late August and early September see Fivizzano holding its International Music
Festival followed by Tango World.
Fivizzano International Music Festival attracts
over 3,000 performers from more than 60 countries around the world. Competitions
and performances range from folk dance to modern jazz and just about everything
in between - a wonderful celebration of the performing arts
Tango World is another
celebration, this time of that most passionate and evocative of dances - the
Tango. Not only can you see the world's greatest tango dancers in action you
can attend classes and learn to tango yourself. How can you refuse?
Throughout the year there are many,many local events so whatever time of year
you visit you need never be bored in Lunigiana.
