May Festival


Festival of May(loc. Island Fossara)

Lift and climb of May, greasy pole. The festival is divided into two parts: the first between the last Sunday of May and the start of June and it is certainly the least known and perhaps the most fascinating,  the second part of the festival takes place about two weeks later: the climb on foot up to the top of the mountain crags of Mount Catria, which took place at sunrise, about four in the morning: the sound of the bagpipe was the alarm for the community and  the second ring annunced the departure of the islanders to the place where take place the first part of the party, through a very specific route which eas travel in honor of S. Antonio.
