Back the Palmese 2018 Carnival in Palma Campania with a double performance of the quadrilles and many special guests.

The 2 or January 2018 begins and the 18 February 2018 ends the Palmese Carnival in Palma Campania with theexhibition of the quadrilles, one hundred year-old tradition among the oldest in Campania, which this year becomes double. The testimonial of this edition will be Maurizio Casagrande.

The quadrille is one unique tradition in Campania and is the symbol of the Carnival of Palma Campania whose program is modeled on the topical moments of the performances that will lead to the victory of one of the quadrilles: the occasion song, the rat of the pennant, parade, staging and songbooks.

For the "occasion song " each quadrille prepares a poem in verse, usually in the vernacular, in which the characteristics of the chosen theme are described with particular reference to the Master and some personages of the Quadrille. The poem, adapted to a known music or in some cases to an unpublished music, constitutes the Canzone d'Occasion. Traditionally the Quadrille on the days of the parade and the performances give the spectators the lyrics of the song with a sprig of mimosa and the spectator makes a small financial contribution.

The kermesse officially begins with "The rat of the pennant", The moment that marks the passage of deliveries from the old to the new master of the quadrille, and this year the organization wants to increase the dynamism and the involvement of the quadrilles by organizing a party in the village of the quadrilles.

La parade is a very important moment because it represents the first performance of the quadrille and also a first judgment on how the chosen theme was developed. Finally, in the songbook, the quadrille with the accompaniment of the band performs in famous songs and not that they can act as a glue to the theme.

Not only canonical appointments but also moments of food and wine, one lotteria combined with the carnival and many super guests whose identity has not yet been unveiled by the organization.
