City of Ischia 26/07
The Feast of St. Anne dates back to a tradition of the last century. On July 26, of each year, pregnant women went in procession to worship the effigy of the Virgin Mother, that was in a chapel in the Bay of Cartaromana. They were accompanied by a procession consisting of the fishing boats, which for the occasion decorated the hull with boughs and garlands of flowers.
In the early 30s a group of friends had the idea of establishing an award for the most beautiful boat. Afterwards this group of friends joins a carpenter and craftsman who replaces goiters raft of forms and surprising ornaments. A so start the festive procession with floats in sea water. Since then, the party of the sea cliffs of St Anne has a charm all its own, is an event that has no equal in the world, because it uses a scenario that alone would be worth to live forever. The number one of viewers is exorbitant that crowding on the cliff overlooking the yachts in the beautiful bay. They want to be witnesses that the party retains its charm over time, the atmosphere that is created by the burning of the castle and the spectacular fireworks.
