FIERA DI SAN MICHELE ARCANGELO
In May in Fratta Todina there’s the FAIR OF SAINT MICHAEL. St. Michael the Archangel is the patron of Fratta todina, and the festival has its origins in 1600. Since 2000 the show has been designed to accompany the celebrations for the patron, to enhance and publicize local crafts and typical food and wine products of the village and the surrounding area. The fair takes place in the streets of the old town center where you can find unique handmade objects made by skilled artisans and taste the delights of Umbrian cuisine.
INFIORATA DI CORPUS DOMINI
In May in San Gemini we can admire the beautiful INFIORATA DI CORPUS DOMINI. Several squads armed of flowers and leaves, dried and crushed, create spectacular artistic compositions through the streets of the town. From simple geometric patterns to real pictures rich of detail, the town is colored throughout the route of the procession. The compositions are studied and prepared throughout the year for the occasion, which is confirmed every year as a religious and artistic event of great participation.
