It will be held from 22 to 25 June the traditional Festa dei Gigli in Nola which boasts a very ancient tradition it is even spoken of the fifth century and that from the boasts official recognition of UNESCO as an intangible heritage of humanity. The party is held in honor of San Paolino , patron of the City, whose symbol is precisely the Lily that has gone from being a simple ornament on the candles to be a real wooden structure performed by the artisans of Nola. During the party i Lilies, which can also weigh 30 quintals , they are lifted by means of a system of bars made of chestnut wood and are maneuvered on the shoulders by the "cullatori" whose name probably derives from the oscillating movement produced by the movements of the lily. I'm eight lilies, as many as the corporations who offer their homages to the saint, and one Barca in memory of the Saint's return. They are all party cars that will parade through the town.

My first? But we made it to Nola, not far from Naples. You have to slowly ease out from the emotional cyclone of days living the delirious nolana passione for the celebration of patron saint, Bishop San Paolino — and not just the living it, but hearing it! Music throbs in winding alleyways, palazzi courtyards, and the piazzas where the eight elegant carved gigli tower 25 meters above groups of musicians playing for jubilant locals dancing to the beating rhythms, clapping, waving scarves and fans, blowing whistles dangling around necks. Caporali set the rhythms, directing the paces of the panting, grimacing — at times, moaning — cullatori swaying, prancing in unison to the beats of the band seated on top of their backs.

You may have grown up with a set of beliefs, values and traditions based upon cultural influences. Perhaps you celebrate a certain holiday every year, eat food that is specific to a particular country or speak the language of your ancestors. Regardless of the details, these unique cultural characteristics have helped define whom you are as an individual. Growing up with an Italian-American father, I learned how to make gravy before I was within eye level of the stove, and accept the fact that my house would reek of fish due to the Christmas Eve Seven Fish Tradition, or la Festa dei Sette Pesci. Even more so, I quickly began to look forward to every July when la Festa Dei Gigli, the Festival of Lilies, took place in my paternal family's old neighborhood: Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In brevity, the feast commemorates San Paolino, a bishop from Nola, Italy, who sacrificed his life for a Nolani boy when North African pirates attempted to capture him. In time, San Paolino was returned by a Turkish sultan who admired his sacrifice.
