Strigora

August 18, 2013 at Triora (Imperia)

For the past twenty-five years in the province of Imperia Triora has risen to national fame as the “country of Witches” by virtue of documented process to some poor women in the years 1587-1589.

To celebrate fourth anniversary of that tragic event were organized conferences and exhibitions. In 2001 was born, almost by accident, Strigora. The event, from the legendary first edition, has been repeated every year, always renewed and different, but with a single purpose: to re-evaluate the figure of the poor witches.

Already in the early hours of the morning several dozen exhibitors will set up their stalls for the market of medieval, which will start at 10 am. Meanwhile, the witches and wizards of the Pro Triora cook dishes from the magical flavor that you can enjoy both lunch and dinner in the cool “Boschetto” accompanied by folk music.

At three in the afternoon will begin the real party. A festival designed for the whole family, both for large than for small. The country will magically transform, through alleys and streets you will encounter strange characters that will enchant you with their magic and acrobatics.

Wandering through the medieval alleyways, melodies lift you and take you far away dreams. When darkness have obscured the sun will be enchanted by the magic of the Middle Ages.

In the course of the day is possible, even recommended a visit to the ethnographic museum and witchcraft, which contains a special section dedicated to the extensive process of 1587-1589, with an exhibition of tragic documents, including sentences to death some witches.

Informazioni su Fabio Alcini

Vent'anni e più da giornalista (musicale e non), qualcuno di più da ascoltatore appassionato (musicale e non). Collaborando con testate come Max e Rockstar ho incontrato personaggi interessanti e soprattutto setacciato musica interessante e meno interessante. Continuo qui, in tutta libertà e parlando principalmente della musica che mi piace, e anche di quella che non mi piace, perché alla fine a criticare siamo bravi tutti, e ci divertiamo parecchio. Se vi va, potete dare un'occhiata a quello che ho scritto e a quello che ho fotografato attraverso i link in home page. Vedi tutti gli articoli di Fabio Alcini
