Fòcara of Novoli, fire as a sign of rebirthGen 04, 2016 Lifestyle, Society Fire gives warmth, but it is also a place for meeting, talking, party, socializing. Ever since. Just think of conversations inside a house, around a fireplace or party on the beach, when on fire the night comes light, company, and warmth.With these simple principles, typical of peasant culture, religious rite and Pagan feast, every year in the Salento, and especially in Novoli, in the province of Lecce, the Fòcara, the fire festival, takes its place. This year is held from January 16th to 18th, with echoes in other parts of Salento and a call from all over Italy and the world. A combination of art, with a spectacular installation by Gianfranco Baruchello, the Italian artist who through France has known internationally; Culture and that of the earth in particular; Food, wine, music. This traditional festival has always had a close proximity with great artists over the years: Mimmo Paladino started with his horses and then was the turn of other masters such as Kounellis and Nespolo. The festival and the rite of fire are dedicated to St. Anthony Abate, The Egyptian hermitage lived in the 14th century. It is built by people, thanks to a human chain, a sort of thirty-meter "pyramid" made up of about 100,000 grains of vines and so, without mechanical means, but with a spirit of green, the fire is turned on And all around it dances, is spoken, is sung. The fire burns with him the image of the saint, in a stake that becomes a symbol of purification, rebirth and hope for prosperous and fertile future harvested. And the people, united and involved, live with this moment of joy and hope. For this edition, the municipality of Novoli has also given birth to the Space Fòcara, where to organize various events and give further impetus to the crowd of the participants. In Northern Italy this tradition is the entrepreneur Ersilio Teifreto, originally from Novoli and for many years active in Turin. Her voice, broken by emotion, recalls her childhood and many appointments with her party, and she also tells her through the pages of a blog that cares for her. Fòcara has written so many media, including National Geographic, and Dante , Referring to a heat that warms and places it on the heights of the Pesarese and which has in the Novoli rite its ideal descendant.Mauro Pecchenino
