On 9/18 and 12/25 May the 9th edition of the maritime traditions festival
Canocchia in Sagra in the Centenary of Porto Garibaldi
From April 15 on the official website of the event via the pre-accreditation
for dedicated parks in the town center for those traveling by camper
  People, places, products and traditions of fishing in celebration in Porto Garibaldi: return to the historical and very lively navy a few kilometers from Comacchio, in the province of Ferrara, on 18/19 and 25/26 May 2019 - with a preview dinner in the evening on Friday 17 at the Parish Center - the Festival of the Canocchia and of the Cuttlefish. That this year, together with the ninth edition of this traditional appointment to promote and enhance the still very many local activities connected to the sea world, will also celebrate the centenary of the country's dedication to the Hero of the Two Worlds.
Precisely in 1919, seventy years after his adventurous landing during the epic escape from Rome, a decree from the Kingdom of Italy authorized "the change in the name of the hamlet of Magnavacca in Porto Garibaldi". An anniversary that will be remembered with numerous events starting next April 13th and throughout the summer of the oldest of the Lidi Comacchiesi. But that will also punctuate the "billboard" of the double weekend of the great kermesse of the maritime identity. Starting from the food stand, set up a few steps from the Fish Market and the quay where large and small multicolored fishing boats land, whose kitchens - every Saturday and Sunday for both lunch and dinner - along with local cuisine (from mussel soup to steamed cuttlefish, from sedanini to shrimp or 'alla Magnavacante' to the grilled scallops and stewed squid and cuttlefish and peas with polenta) will also offer two curious desserts: a biscuit in the shape of a ... canocchia and the cake. Not only that: even along the exhibition route that will color the PortoCanale with food, craft, art and intellectual stalls, the Magnavacca-Porto Garibaldi Centenary will be 'narrated' with highly suggestive images and installations, such as the grandiose show pyromusical that on Saturday 25 May will illuminate the Darsena with lights, colors and notes. While, for hiking enthusiasts - perhaps ending with a tasty epilogue - there are three events that should not be missed. In the first weekend the double cycling event, with the "Trafila Garibaldina in Bici", cycle excursion of 45 kilometers that in the afternoon of Saturday 18 will unite the Capanno Garibaldi of Lido Nations with the Fattoria Guiccioli (where Anita died) and the "Magnalonga (in bike) of the Canocchia ”, a cycle-ride with four delicious stops between Porto Garibaldi and Lido Volano which will start at 10am on Sunday 19 from PortoCanale. While on Sunday 26 May we will walk with the poles 'A Nordic Walking Pass' from Porto Garibaldi to the Hut where the Hero of the Two Worlds, Anita and his followers found shelter shortly after the landing on the coast of Comacchio on the night of 3 August 1849.
Also this year, to facilitate the reception of those who move in campers, they will be made available by the Sagra organization during the two weekends of the event - with the possibility of arriving starting at 8 pm on Friday - dedicated spaces for parking vehicles and campers in the center of the village.
Starting from April 15th, through pre-crediting with advance payment to be made by accessing the dedicated page of the official website of the event, it will be possible to book at the cost of 20 euros per vehicle / crew break weekend in the parking area 'piazza don Verità' ( 35 places available, illuminated, paved, manned but not supervised, GPS coordinates N 44 ° 67 70 E 12 ° 23 36) and, upon exhaustion, in the parking area 'via Menotti' (20 places available, illuminated, grassy ground) beaten, manned but not supervised, GPS coordinates N 44 ° 67 59 E 12 ° 23 90).

The Verein Düsseldorf Palermo e.V. is pleased to invite you to our next event / Der Verein Düsseldorf Palermo e.V. freut sich, euch zu unserer nächsten Veranstaltung einzuladen
Engramma - San Giorgio
Clemens Botho Goldbach ~ Daniele Franzella
Opening 27 April 2019, h 12
Archaeological area of ​​Piazza XIII Vittime, Palermo
Engramma - San Giorgio is a project by the Verein Düsseldorf Palermo e. V. in collaboration with the Sicily Region, Superintendency of the BB. CC. AA, with the patronage of the Municipality of Palermo and the Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo
The archaeological area of ​​Piazza XIII Vittime is a restless witness to the history of Palermo. The area was initially occupied by a first Byzantine necropolis and then Islamic, later it became part of the Harat ‘as Saqalibah district, first for number of inhabitants in the last Arab period of the city. In the Norman age the city walls and the fortress of the Castello a Mare were built, which soon became one of the bulwarks of the city since the Vespers' war between the Angevins and the Aragonese at the end of the 13th century. The area has always been exposed to internal and external tensions dictated by the different political and social transformations of the history of Palermo. In the 15th century, a large bastion was built near the Porta San Giorgio and in the Castello a Mare, a political and military center of great importance, the first seat of the Court of the Inquisition of Palermo was established. At the end of the nineteenth century the obelisk dedicated to the "XIII Victims" of the revolt of the Gancia was erected, moved a few years ago close to the area to make way for the installation of the "Monument to the Fallen in the Fight against the Mafia" at the center of square. Recent history brings us back to the terrible bombings of the Second World War and to the state of subsequent abandonment, up to the archaeological excavations of the 1980s that contributed to making the area free from new constructions. Piazza XIII Victims spans 14 centuries of the city's history, tells us about the people who inhabited it, who governed it and how it has changed over time. An echo of this whirlwind of events, of the voices of the ancient quarter, of its buildings and constructions, remains in the area; what seemed to have disappeared and forgotten comes back to light thanks to archeology. The Engramma - San Giorgio project seeks to capture this echo through the installation of two monuments, created by Clemens Botho Goldbach and Daniele Franzella, which, holding out the story, make fragments re-emerge in mutated forms. The works interpret the ruins of collective memory and the void left by the history that the archaeological area has incorporated. In Engramma - San Giorgio Franzella presents a sculpture that will be placed in the direction of the church of San Giorgio. It is a case that reveals just the shape of a statue and condenses the complex historical passages of the area. A statue of difficult decipherment, because it is a symbol of the various eras and of the various peoples who are the protagonists of Piazza XIII Vittime. Franzella's work interprets the atmosphere of the archaeological area trying to embrace and preserve the different fragments of the history of the city of Palermo, of which the area is a witness. Goldbach is dedicated to the ruins of extinct places. In his production the German artist tries to recreate and reconstruct, through the use of building material, buildings and structures of which there is only an ephemeral memory both in open spaces and in exhibition spaces. For the project Engramma - San Giorgio Goldbach realizes the printed door on the 100 euro banknotes. The image, by the Austrian artist Robert Kalina, is fictitious, summa of baroque elements taken from different monuments. Goldbach presents it as a ruin, a ruin-born door, an ephemeral monument, never existed, placed on the ruins of the walls near the site of the ancient San Giorgio gate. Engram - Saint George tries to recover lost symbols of the city, to tear them from their invisible dimension by reactivating the memory of the city itself.
