A highpoint of springtime in Umbria – indeed, of all of central Italy – is Assisi’s stunning early May medieval festival, Calendimaggio, welcoming the arrival of spring in four days of glorious euphoria.
The splendid medieval pageantry is certainly a highlight of my annual early May ten-day Annesitaly “Inside Umbria” Celebration for ten people ready to live a truly INSIDE experience of Umbrian life.
No words describe Calendimaggio’s majestic splendor, nor la passione of the assisani. May these photos inspire you to one day experience the wonders, live la passione firsthand:
(Thanks to Jerry and Carol, too, for their photos):
