Coloring the Skies

This weekend, the incredibly picturesque town of Castiglione del Lago, located on the banks of Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, will become even more beautiful. The event is called Coloriamo i Cieli, and it features some of the world’s most interesting kites as well as its most adept kite fliers.

Since its inception, in 1982, the festival has spawned dozens of smaller programs, such as hot air balloon rides, nature walks in Parco del Lago Trasimeno, art exhibits, such as a collection of Chinese kites, and food fairs in Castiglione’s main piazza. Indeed, in Umbria, Coloriamo i Cieli means that spring has sprung!
