Carnival of Putignano
One of the oldest and definitely the longest event in the world takes place in the ancient town of Putignano in the Puglia region of Italy. The origins date back to 1394 when the Knights of Malta moved the relics of St. Stephen from Monolpoli to Putignano to protect them from looters. They were joined by peasants and the occasion was celebrated with dancing, music and singing. Each year on St. Stephen’s Day (December 26th) they have the Festa delle Propaggini to mark the start of the Carnevale season, which ends with the ringing of the bell on Shrove Tuesday.
Carnevale is a magical time in Italy. The entire country celebrates this long-standing tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. Towns all over Italy celebrate this event in their own unique way. The comune of Canale d’Agordo in the province of Belluno within the Veneto region is no different as they celebrate La Zinghenésta.
