Each district of the town, collect wood old wood, pruning of oaks, olive trees, oaks, mastic, and prepares a bonfire around which, accompanied by small touring orchestras that play popular music of southern Italy, you can dance and you can taste local produce and homemade wine. Very beautiful are the torches of the Old Town and along alleys and steps you will be enraptured by oriental melodies and frenetic rhythms of Tamburelli and Tammorre. The soundtrack of the festival offers "Pizziche", "Saltarelli" and "Tammurriate." At 20.00 a firecracker announces the stoker to turn the lighting of bonfires and a moment later the sky glows red Itri and thousands of sparks, along with bystanders, dance in the dark of night.
