CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
November 8th 20014 at 2pm.
We, The Sons of San Paolino di Nola would like to invite you to join in and witness history on Saturday, November 8th in the St Catherine of Sienna parking lot in Franklin Square.
We are pleased to announce that for the 1st time in New York, a Giglio has been constructed with the key element of the true “Italian Giglio”, “La Prima Borda”, or “La Borda” for short which is also known as “The soul of the Lily”. This key element, along with its intricate construction of lightweight lumber will allow us to “dance” the Giglio the way it was meant to be danced.
In the spirit of this throwback to authenticity, we will be hosting “O’Giglio Spogliato” November 8th, at 2pm. For those who may not know, “spogliato” means undressed or naked. The Giglio will not be “dressed” with its normal “face”, rather the bones or bare wood structure will be on display for all to see.
The intent of this afternoon will be to test the new style authentic structure, demonstrate proper lifting, dancing and turning techniques. So join us and celebrate this truly noteworthy event where Giglio authenticity comes back to America.
