Montone, and the 16th edition of the www.UmbriaFilmFestival.com 11-15 July 2012. - "Floating high above an etemal landscape, in the heart of a dark stone town, images from the Adventures of Baron Munchausen tumble across a giant screen which towers over a small moonlit square.

They are three wooden structures made of two octagonal prisms, one on top of the other, supported internally by a wooden frame which has a bar going through it from top to bottom. This bar comes through to the outside and forms two pegs. The bottom peg fixes into a carrying frame called a "barella" which is carried on the shoulders. The top peg is used to fix one of the three little statues who represent the saints who protect the corporations.

Le Gaite
Every year, in Umbria, there is a little town that goes back for ten days to the 13th century. This is Bevagna and its "Mercato delle Gaite". During these ten days the town is divided in four neighborhoods. They will dress, eat, speak and build things just as it was. They are in big competition between each other and the last challenge is bow and arrow.
