Flower decorations at the Castiglione del Lago Tulip Festival

Flower decorations at the Castiglione del Lago Tulip Festival

Normally one rather thinks of Holland when talking about tulips or tulip celebrations. So travelers to Italy might be astonished to hear that there is also a big tulip festival in Italy.
Castiglione del Lago is a pittoresque little town, situated on a peninsula in the Trasimeno Lake, the "Umbrian Sea". There since 1956 the inhabitants celebrate every year in spring time the "Festa del Tulipano".
The whole town is decorated with tulip flowers and the locals compete among each other who creates the most beautiful decorations on windows and balconies and wins one of the prices awarded by the severe local jury .
During the five days of the tulip festival one can enjoy entertainment almost around the clock.
There are to be found street theaters, buskers, folk dance groups, processions and games of the „Nobles“ and the „Common people“ in historical costumes, handed down to us in old chronics. On Sunday the festival culminates into a big procession with flower decorated carts, displaying allegorical as well as satirical motives. For this carts literally thousands of tulip flowers (usually the ones to short to be sold) are arranged painstakingly to artistic compositions.
Of course there will be lots of culinary treats as well.
Taverns are set up in the whole town, where visitors can taste typical dishes based on medieval and renaissance recipes.
The tulip festival is anchored firmly in the history of Castiglione, everybody is enthusiastic about it and it is really typical Italian. Yet one might like to know "Who invented it?"...
The answer to this question can be found following this link
From Villa La Rogaia Castiglione del Lago and the tulip festival can be reached comfortably by car.
