Patroni di Puglia
 
Fabulous atmospheres, indefinable colours, the unmistakable scent of votive candles and spices of the land, the nostalgic suggestion of the popular songs, the processional rites and ancestral scents. To participate, attend, capture an emotion visiting places; to be in touch with the local people; to listen to their tales and live their spiritual experiences; to get moved before the touching beauty of a blue sea, to be impressed and amazed before the suggestive architectures of the ancient urban centers, depositary of the local history of an entire community; to live the intense atmosphere of spirituality, emotive and sensorial participation which accompanies the popular events. To be involved by the colours and scents which envelop the white Romanic cathedrals, the narrow paved alleys, the towers and fortifications, which reveal themselves to the tourist, who is ready to observe and listen to the sounds, noises and tales whispered by the stones, in their dialect. A land with strong landscape, historical and cultural contrasts, and therefore charming to tourists; an extraordinary land whose people’s ancestral tales fascinate and enchant with a touching and spontaneous narration, which is typical of people from Apulia. The events of the saint patron festivals of the “SAINT PATRONS OF APULIA” and the “HOLY WEEK IN APULIA” are faith and culture paths which, by protecting the production and transmission of rites, symbols and images jealously safeguarded by the local communities, contribute to keep the collective history alive in everybody’s memory. Entertainment, education, imagination, aesthetic experience and meditation are elements which differentiate the touristic offer and communicate to the tourist the possibility to live focused and unforgettable “EXPERIENCES”.To be very close to the local community, to directly participate to the processional events, to see this with your own eyes, to be transported by the strong “pathos” which envelops and touches everybody. A voyage that is deeply rooted in the collective unconscious of the original matrix to which it belongs, events that, for their historical, anthropological, cultural and religious characteristics, for their “soul” dimension, both personal and collective, that inherently characterizes them, can move the tourist, contributing to make the places and the towns where they take place unique for a vacation that offers nourishment to the spirit and cultural enrichment, where the visit unforgettably marks the memory of those who cross them and are fascinated by crossing them.
