Altamente by Gianni De Blasi



Altamente by Gianni De Blasi

Every year, from January 11th to 18th, the people of Novoli, a small village in Salento (Italy), celebrate Sant’Antonio Abate. There they build a pile of shoots, The Fòcara, that is lit up when liturgical and religious rituals are over, thus giving the start signal to a series of concerts, cultural and convivial meetings: it is the Fòcara Festival that turns from a traditional and religious celebration into an international breath taking event. On this background the voices of Hidetoshi Nagasawa and Emir Kusturica give an exterior point of view on the celebration and on the sane madness of the people.
