S.Vito Saint Patron Festival – Polignano a Mare (BA)
Three days for our patron’s festival, full of religious celebrations, civils (folks) and folklore. We remember, in detail, the most waiting moment: S. Vito’s coming on the 14 June in the evening on a big raft with lights, flowers and flags, followed by about hundred boats. The Saint would be carried away from Porto Mariano to hermit’s rock in Polignano a Mare, drive along the coast and the hanging houses on the see; at the same time managers and people are waiting the raft in Cala Paura (the beach). Thereafter, the Saint, is putting on a cart full of angels, flowers, and as a patron, receives from the mayor the key of the city.
Bari in Jazz Festival – Polignano a Mare (BA)
13th edition of Bari’s Jazz Festival, a Festival between music and land that explain as a sound wave from the capital of Puglia up to the municipalities of the metropolitan city that will host musical events, including Polignano a Mare. Many live performance and other events that attract a diverse audience for interesting and taste about music, thanks to a great program of major national and international presence and local talent.
Festival “Il libro possibile” – Polignano a Mare (BA)
A great kermesse of four days, while including five Polignano a Mare’s squares, which guests, various artists, writers, intellectuals, talk all together to an audience very attentive and large. The Festival’s strength is about word’s strength that build, design, organize an ideal community, as a politelia, where every spectator becomes a preferential speaker of a walk for building ideas. A great architecture of thought that allows ideas to become the scene of a polyphonic exchanges, during which the synergy that exist between author, speaker and spectator would be a secular miracle of montalian memory. So becomes “possible” to take the epiphany of a cultural growth perspective of society, a necessary nourishment from which every civitas should not ignore to feed a future that is innervated on deep awareness of being a citizen, with all the civil laws/rights that this state leads.

Red Bull Cliff Diving – Polignano a Mare (BA)
Free-falling from up to 27m combined with awe-inducing acrobatics – that’s the essence of cliff diving. Since 2009 the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has provided a platform for aesthetic action and dives of incredible complexity. It’s pure. It’s breath-taking and it’s packed full of exciting drama.
