The ancient tradition wants that in the night between the 30th April and the 1st May in Terni the arrival of spring should be celebrated with a big event: the Cantamaggio, that this year reaches its 121st edition.
A complete innovation for 2017 is going to be the pairing of the six competing floats with the apparently original districts of Terni in the far 17th century.
To open the "Spring Festival", from the 28th April to the 14th May, there will be the seventh competition of songs in dialect "G. Capiato" at the Secci Theatre, whereas in the evening of 30th April it will be the turn of the floats' parade along the town's streets (with reply and awarding on the 1st May).
The sixth contest for poets "Alighiero Maurizi" is instead going to take place at the Secci Theatre on the 5th May at 4 pm, whereas on the 6th, 13th and 14th May the "May Festival" is going to be organized in the districts.
