“QUAQUA’! ATTACCATI LA’! L’oca dalle piume d’oro” (‘Quack quack! Stick there! The goose with the golden feathers’)
with Serena Di Blasio
scripted and directed by Antonella Caruzzi
in cooperation with CTA ‘Centro Teatro Animazione e Figure’ of Gorizia
This ancient and mysterious fairy tale from the European folk tradition tells the story of a beautiful princess who never laughs, not even in front of the most ridiculous and amusing situations. Like all fairy-tale kings, her father wants to find her a husband. So, he decides to give her hand in marriage to whoever can make her laugh, whoever he is. The princess, however, sets a terrible condition: whoever tries and fails must die.
Serena Di Blasio tells us this story as her grandmother did: using cabbages, potatoes, and everything else she finds in the kitchen while she prepares dinner, she will make our imagination fly into a timeless world.
duration: about 30 minutes
Lady Rock’A’Rella RHUM – TOUR PACK
Francesca Mari Juggling Company
Juggling, street theatre, contemporary circus
Lady Rock’a’Rella is a spicy pin-up girl who arrives on her pedal bike straight from the 1950s and 1960s… Refusing to be the pin-up girl who only poses on two-wheelers, she shows muscles and teeth, masters unicycles and B-cycles, using her circus technique to seduce.
Get ready for breathtaking juggling, ‘side-car Risley acts’, and a rock’n’roll repertoire of our favourite songs that have profoundly marked an era, a style, and above all our hearts!

The trail walk, conducted in cooperation with the guides of the ‘Club Alpino Italiano’ (Muggia section), winds along the entire Muggia peninsula and enables visitors to admire various natural attractions on the coast and inland. We will use public transport to head to Lazzaretto area and then climb gently towards Castelletto to continue along the “Traversata Muggesana” trail. Passing through villages like Chiampore, Punta Olmi, and the picturesque Muggia Vecchia, we will return to Muggia along the Ubaldini path to reach the different festival squares. The trail walk is about 6 km long and the positive altitude difference is very limited (the uphill part will be done by public transport).
