On Sunday, October 28, 2018 the “Night of the Giants” festival will take place in Locorotondo. The organization Smile from Taranto is the organizer of this street festival. Stilt walkers will create and perform during this stilt walkers’ festival with the support and under the auspices of the Regional Department of Culture and Tourism.
It is an event presenting talented artists, who will provide entertainment in Locorotondo.
Locorotondo’s name means “round place”. The old town’s form is circular. The local architecture of the cottages includes the typical “cummerse”. These are small houses with pitched roofs located on the top of the hill. In this beautiful place the squares will be full of colorful stilt dancers, acrobats and performers. From the Piazza Aldo Moro to the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele people will celebrate with street performances on October 28. Visitors and locals can enjoy a program designed by acrobats, dancers and musicians. Dance and light shows will enchant the audience. Dancers, musicians and jugglers on stilts will thrill the audience and a street band will play live.
With the new event “La notte dei Giganti” we would like to invite all interested people to Locorotondo, where the artists have prepared a wonderful show, supported by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
By the way Locorotondo produces an excellent DOC white wine, so while you are in town, you should enjoy a glass or two of the local white wine.
