If anyone has any suggestions for other sites and links for reference, please feel free to post your comment and I'll update this blog entry. For your specific interest, please search the web for further information using Google

Please note: If you want me to reply to your comment or request for further information by email, please include your email address in a separate comment. I will NOT publish any comments with an email address in it.

FYI: Wherever possible, I attempted to provide information about a specific event, festa or sagra in English. However, while a web site states there may be an English version of it, you will usually find more information about the specific event, festa or sagra in the Italian version.

For those of you that say there is nothing to do on weekends in Italy, you are WRONG! Before my wife and I moved to Italy in 2007, we had attended several feste, sagre and events in the years before our move. You can spend as much or as little as you want and get to meet and see Italians, their friends and other travelers and visitors celebrate various and sundry events in and around their towns. There is more to Italy than museums, historical sites, art, hilltop towns/cities, etc.

For events, feste and sagre outside of Umbria, please read my blog entry titled, Info on Events and Festivals (festa or sagra) in Italy and Info on Events and Festivals (feste or sagre) in TuscanyIf I missed any events, feste and sagre in Umbria, please send me an email MSG or post a comment.

When you are driving around or walking around the many towns and cities of Umbria, take the time to read the bulletin/notice/bill boards in these towns and cities. This is where my wife and I find about a specific event, festa or sagra in the town, city or somewhere in the surrounding area. Depending on the size of the event, festa or sagra, it may not have a web site or be listed on web sites that keep track of events, feste or sagre in Italy. You will find most of these notices for events, feste or sagre are usually printed in a bright color and sometimes only a week or two before the actual event, festa or sagra.

For events, feste and sagre outside of Umria, please read my blog entries titled, and Info on Events and Festivals (festa or sagra) in Italy and

EXPLANATION: The reason that I have provided multiple sources and lists is because there is no all inclusive listing for feste, sagre and events in Toscana or Italy. Even if an event, festa or sagra is listed somewhere, it may be dated or list information from last year's event, festa or sagra.

That's it for Tuesday, 1 July 2008: martedì, 1 luglio 2008
