Useful information


The number of participants in the Festival of Life increases every year. Therefore,  for organizational and security reasons, REGISTRATIONS is required once again.  Registering provides you with a PASS which allows you access to the area under the TENTS which will host the various events of the Festival.
This allows the Community to organize itself better and serve the participants with more attention. The PASS does not give you access to the hill with your own car.
REGISTRATION IS OBLIGATORY, FREE and can be done on this site. We ask, therefore, the courtesy to register as soon as possible from this page...
