From many years, the summer of Umbria has been enriched by an event different from the usual: Armenzano Emotions Under the Stars. Those days, the town surrounded by the Mount Subasio Park, already famous for its Living Nativity, comes alive with exhibitions, markets, children’s shows. The Stars are the true protagonists of the event.
The unique and unmissable event is the Night Walk in the paths of the woods.
In the light of the torches you can deeply discover the unspoiled nature and, from a privileged view, you can see the beautiful sky of Subasio. The Armenzano local tourist association, together with cultural associations and amateur astronomers, prepares many places with animations and acted scenes that will delight the path.
During Armenzano Emotion Under the Stars, you can watch theatrical performances inside the castle. For fans, the group “Friends of the Mountain” and the CAI of Foligno organize excursions to the summit of the mountain. During the event, experts astronomers, thanks to their professional telescopes, will lead participants through the beauty of the sky.
