Festa de’Noantri

La Festa de’Noantri in Trastevere 21.07-29.07

While fully respecting the tradition again this year in Trastevere you prepare the Festa de Noantri, with its procession and the many initiatives that will revive the traditions of Rome now disappeared. Will recreate the atmosphere dear to the Romans and tourists, banquets Among the precious handicrafts, folk music concerts, theatrical performances, the festival will have its beginning from Saturday, July 21.

Trastevere combines tradition, religion and history. The Festa de Noantri is an example of how the district enhances its culture. The places of the district, its churches and its history.

The program is in preparation of the Civil and Religious Festa de Noantri 2012 which will be presented July 18 in the Council Chamber of City Hall Old Town.

WHAT IT CELEBRATES The Feast Noantri (ie: the rest of us, as opposed to “you people who live in other districts) is celebrated in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel on the occasion of His liturgical feast, from 15 to 30 July in the Trastevere district of Rome. And undoubtedly one of the most favorite holidays of the Roman people. The origins of the festival seems to date back to 1535: in fact, that is handed down after a storm at the mouth of the Tiber was found by some fishermen a statue of the Virgin Mary carved in cedar wood.trastevere

The Lady, for this reason called Madonna Fiumarola, was then given to the Carmelites (to whom we owe the title Madonna del Carmine) of the church of San Grisogono in Trastevere (in Piazza Sonnino), became the patron saint of Trasteverini .

The statue is now in the church of St. Agatha, in the square in half on the path Lungaretta (Piazza S. Giovanni de Matha): from here every year on the Saturday after July 16 (liturgical feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) . The nineteenth-century polychrome wooden statue of the Madonna del Carmine is carried in procession through the streets of the neighborhood to the church of San Grisogono, where it stays for eight days, before returning with another procession into church membership.

Over time, the festival was transformed to meet the needs of tourism, thus losing its popular character, but retaining its strong religious feeling.

Concert : The Cranberries in Rome

The Cranberries are to be again on the main stage of  international live tours : Rome will welcome them at the Ippodromo delle Capannelle as part of the event Rock in Roma for a huge concert on 5th July 2010 singing their greatest hits and some new songs too !
The Cranberries The band is an Irish pop-rock group born in 1990s.
Noel and Mike Hogan, two brothers from Limerick , formed the band with drummer Fergal Patrick Lawler in 1990. Dolores O’Riordan won the audition to become the vocalist singing  the song “Linger”.
The band was originally called The Cranberry Saw Us, a pun that makes the verse to “Cranberry Sauce”.
Their demo sold well locally, so they recorded new songs and signed to major label Island Records. Their first piece was a flop. But then, with the advent of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can not We? the group’s success grew unabated. The second single, Linger, immediately became a big hit in Britain and the United States . The single Dreams then followed the success of the first songs and shortly after the group became one of the most famous and later used by television (advertising, television, etc.).
In 1994, O’Riordan married Don Burton, the band’s manager. O’Riordan status caused tensions within the group during the recording of No Need to Argue, a new success that includes the famous Zombie (violence in Northern Ireland ) and Ode to My Family. The success of this album is a contributory factor which subsequently grew many British bands like Oasis, Radiohead, Blur and Placebo.

After a period of separation that lasted seven years in which team members have dedicated themselves to their individual projects, Dolores O’Riordan, Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler Mike Hogan have decided to return to perform together and plan the future of the group planning a tour and announcing going back into the studio soon to record new songs.

Florence and the Machine Visits Rome

-After a long internal struggle Ilaria brings you the nuts and bolts of the upcoming visit of the new British pop sensation, Florence and the Machine.

Our Blogger: Ilaria

florence-and-the-machineOne of the events more expected this summer in Rome is the concert of a talented and sensual English singer: her name is Florence Welch, playing with her band, “the machine”, she’s already been defined as heiress of Kate Bush, Siouxsie e Pj Harvey and very soon she has became the pop diva more appreciated and cuddled on the English stage , climbing the charts of half the world and conquering the Italian radios too with the single  You’ve got the love.

After staying at the very first position on the English charts and winning the  Brit Awards with the album  Lungs, there are rumors about a  collaboration of her with Thom York , the singer of Radiohead.

HThe band’s debut album is a very original work that doesn’t betray the best English tradition, being able anyway to  go beyond the definition of independent rock . This album was made inside a debunked synagogue with the help of  two among the most sought-after producers   : James Ford (already working for Klaxons and Arctic Monkeys) and Paul Epworth (Bloc Party).

When Florence was very young at school she was a “peculiar character”  who used to read Poe and Jack The Ripper, to listen to the Velvet Underground and make gothic drawings  ( so that her mates used to define her as “macabre” ) : a teenager’s past a little bit dark transformed into an absolutely bright present; Florence says “ I love singing, I love dancing, I love playing the drums. The fact that someone pays me for doing it, well is just incredible”.

Florence has also been chosen by the Blur to open their concert in London and Manchester in June 2009. The band’s Roman concert will take place at the Auditorium Parco Della Musica, located only a short bus trip away from Yes Hotel and Hotel Des Artistes.
