Like your celebrations colourful, loud and part of a crowd? Then head to Gubbio in the Italian province of Perugia (Umbria) come May 15th for the annual Corsa dei Ceri di Gubbio.
High on pagentry, dripping with ceremony and strong devotional overtones, the Ceri sees three teams representing different saints carry what looks like pieces from the world's largest chess set around the town square then half-way up a mountain. For more information and a much more thorough explanation than I could ever hope to give, pay a visit to our friends over at Ceri.it.
