This event has ended

Night of the witches


San Giovanni in Marignano (RN)

This celebration replaces the ancient rites once held to mark the summer solstice. For centuries it has therefore given rise to various events linked to popular beliefs and customs.

These include “Saint John’s Bonfires” as well as other propitiatory rituals that were typical of festivities to mark the start of the summer.
A collective custom on this occasion was to collect herbs that, according to popular belief, multiply their therapeutic and magical qualities if picked on the night before the feast of Saint John the Baptist.

Date: the event will be held from Jun 19, 2019 to Jun 23, 2019

Event timetable: from dusk until late night


Five days of performances of Italian and foreign artists with street entertainment, magicians, jugglers, mimes, musicians, and fire eaters.
