People who live in Corinaldo love their town deeply, but there is more than the cares and the close bond between the citizens and the town: Corinaldo really stands out, and could it be because of that touch of madness that characterizes the residents? Who knows…
The truth is that Corinaldo charms everyone comes here, even those who stop for a short visit.
And if the visitor happens to come here in some particular moments of the year, he can enjoy several events, among which “Halloween – The witches’ festival”: a terrific and crazy autumn carnival that takes place since 1998, attracting people from all over the country. Lovers of historical reenacments and burskers festival should not miss the famous “Contention of the Polenta Well” that recreates the celebrations following 1517 unsuccessful siege.
And walking through the town’s alley, the day after one of these events, you will realize how the entire city of Corinaldo is a stage on which a different show is performed every day!

Contention of Polenta Well

The oldest historical reenactment in the Ancona province takes place in the heart of the historic centre on the third Sunday of July, every year.
The events includes various artistic demonstrations, archer contests and historic games, the throwing of the sack of flour into the well and the annual contest between the quarters of the city. The winning quarter has the honour to represent the figures of the Duke and Duchess during the next festival. There also is a historic parade with dozens of figures wearing Sixteen century costumes created by local tailors.

In the summer of every year Corinaldo hosts some of the most important national and international jazz musicians. The concerts are held in the large Piazza Il Terreno, and draws a considerable public presence from the Marche and beyond. Organized by Corinaldo Municipality, in collaboration with Teatro Time – Produzione Spettacoli, the festival has hosted the Enrico Rava Quartet and the Roberto Gatto Quintet, among others.

Halloween, The Witches’ Festival

The first event of its kind in Italy, it has been held for over fifteen years and is considered one of the largest events in the Marche region.
Local taverns with typical dishes, various art shows, haunted houses, accompanied by decoration with torches and pumpkins transport the city into a magical world of fantasy. “Miss Strega” (Miss Witch) is elected during the celebration, who is certainly not the ugliest, but the prettier witch of the third millennium.
