The Capodarmi Folkfestival is a no profit event and it's organized in collaboration with the CID (Conseil International de la Danse), with the IOV (International Organization of Folk Art) both organs of the UNESCO and with the sponsorship of the UFI (Unione Folklorica Italiana) National Federation recognized by the Italian Cultural Department.
Introducing our citizens and numerous tourists, through music, typical dances, songs and customs to the culture and
the popular traditions of nations and foreign people is the aim of the Festival. This purpose raises from consciousness
that this kind of events can give a strong impulse to the
friendship and the brotherhood among peoples.
Beside the show of about three hours (20/25 minutes for each group), a “Parade of the Nations” will be carried out: more than 150 persons in popular custom, with their typical instruments and flags, will parade through streets of the town raising the enthusiasm of the audience and inviting it to the performance. Typical handicraft products, objects, books, musical and video CD of the groups will be exposed in various stands.
