Risultati immagini per cervia sposalizio del mare 2018

 This weekend join the fishermen at Cervia (Emilia Romagna) for the annual ritual ceremony of the Marriage of the Sea. Like all weddings, this is a happy occasion with food, drink and live music. Good, old-fashioned entertainment is assured on Sunday evening (13 May) when competitors will attempt to climb up the traditional greasy pole, suspended over the water. Cervia's symbolic union with the sea dates back to 1445 and is one of the oldest festivals of its kind in Italy. This, in fact, is the 574 edition.
