Events and festivals in Lugo, Ravenna
Traditions are still very alive in the typical town festivals and celebrations: on the third Sunday after Easter, there is the celebration of S. Francesco, with the Palio della Cavea and the Palio degli Sbandieratori, and on 19th June, the aerial day in memory of Francesco Baracca.
Perhaps not everyone knows that Lugo in Romagna is very closely linked indeed to Maranello and the legend of Ferrari. In fact, one day, the then young and as yet unknown Enzo Ferrari, came to the Baracca family home to ask permission of commendatory Enrico, Francesco’s father, to decorate his racing cars with the rearing horse, symbol of Francesco Baracca. Permission granted. And the legend continues.
