Festa de' Noantri 2019

La processione della Madonna Fiumarola

A traditional festival that lasts eight days, connecting holy and profane, masterfully filmed by Federico Fellini in the 1972 film Roma: we are talking about the Festa de’ Noantri, the annual event livening up the streets of the Trastevere district every summer. The term “Noantri” comes from the words “noi altri”, or “we others”, as opposed to “the rest of you” who live in other districts. Trastevere, on the opposite side of the river, has always had its own distinctive features, since the division of the city into regions under the emperor Augustus. The festival retains its charm still today and has a glocal dimension, connecting old and new inhabitants of the district, Romans and tourists, according to the spirit of our times. Central to the festival are the religious celebrations in honour of the Madonna Fiumarola, or Madonna del Carmine. Their origins date back to 1535, when a group of local fishermen discovered a statue of the Virgin Mary carved in cedar wood at the mouth of the river Tiber during a storm. The statue became the patron saint of Trastevere and is housed in the church of Sant’Agata, leaving its home only once a year: the first Saturday after the feast day of the Blessed Virgin of Mount Carmel on 16 July. The effigy of the Virgin is carried in procession through the streets of the district and by boat along the river, re-enacting her miraculous discovery.
