25 April - Long Weekend

April 25: a journey through the colours and traditions of Puglia

The beauty of Puglia in the springtime is a never-ending wonder. It’s something that we at Borgo Egnazia know well and would like to share with you through two new and unique experiences for the upcoming April 25 Italian bank holiday.

The first is an unprecedented and touching encounter with a much elegant and sensitive animal: the horse. Picture the two of you building a deep empathy on your mutual trust. It is indeed the moving and thrilling grand final of a special path we have prepared with the Parco di Mare jockey club: two unforgettable days for adults and children, spent wandering among the breathtaking colours of our countryside and living an unbelievable moment when you and your horse, alone and in harmony inside the riding stables, will seal a bond that will last forever.

Our second experience will take you back in time, to discover two sides of the most authentic Apulian handicrafts. On the first day in the one-of-a-kind scenario of the “trulli”, the cone-roofed houses in Alberobello, you’ll learn the secrets of ancient crafts such as the hand-manufacturing of raffia, wool and prickly pear pads, which locals have been using for centuries to make dolls, decorations, small barrows off our rural tradition. On the second day, we’ll take you to Putignano, where the oldest European carnival parade is held. Here, the great papier-mâché artist Demi Bianco will welcome you to his magical and mesmerizing workshop and show you some techniques and secrets from the extraordinary Apulian art of papier-mâché.

So, choose and enjoy the experience you like the most. And then celebrate it in the grand final festival we’ll hold in the La Frasca resturant on April 25. It’s going to be a feast of joy and conviviality, with a lunch based on the best recipes from our land, the energy of popular music by Terraròss and an exclusive preview of the renowned “Scamiciata” of Fasano, the annual commemoration of our elders’ victory against the Ottomans in 1678.
