Needless to say, there are 1,000's of events in Italy and all through the year. One of the most comprehensive sources can be found at Italian Holidays, Festivals, Street Parties… – "a list of Italian holidays and festivals which can be accessed by city, region and date." – Source: the Hostetler web site. There is not one source for all these events, festivals, etc. Unfortunately, one needs to look at many, many listings to find the event or festival that they like to attend. The best way to find an event is to ask around and to the locals of the area you are traveling in who may share with you one of their favorites.
