Festival of Thalami

15.08.2011 - 15.08.2011

The festival dates back to late medieval period and is linked to the tradition of liturgical dramas. Originally the thalami were a kind of stretchers carried on shoulders in which, at one time, a young woman dressed as Virgin Mary was surrounded by boys and girls depicting angels. This tradition has been handed down to our days, and the Thalami in recent years have been realized by artists of Orsogna: D'Ercole, and Bartoletti, who renew every year the biblical scenes to play.
