Ferragosto at Pradovera, 15 August
Popular dances and traditional songs, Thursday15 August 2013
At Ferragosto, 15 August, once again the occasion for popular games on the sports field of Pradovera in the upper Nure Valley.
The festival day will be accompanied - from the early hours of the morning - by the emotional strains of the mountain songs. In fact, in the morning visitors will be entertained with popular music by the Piacenza group 'I Musetta' (who play a wide repertory of pipe music from the upper Nure Valley).
After this the folk group the 'Spunciaporchi' from Genoa will play popular Ligurian songs. Both these groups help to hand down the musical tradition of the Four Provinces (Piacenza, Genoa, Pavia, Alessandria).
In the late afternoon (at 6 pm) there is the excitement of the descent of the parachutists followed by an exhibition of paramotors: every year this event attracts a large public from all the surrounding valleys.
Food stands will be open all day and in the evening there will be dancing and entertainment by the wonderful Titti Bianchi. Inflatable toys and games for the children.
