When Umbertide used be a village called Fratta


For the sixth year in a row, on 13, 14 15 and 16 September 2007, Umbertide will turn into a stage for one of the most interesting historic commemorations of our


With this 6th edition, “La Fratta dell’Ottocento” has now become one of the most interesting historic commemorations of our region. What sets it apart from many other events in period costumes that annually enliven the life of our towns, is above all the historic period to which it refers, which is not, as is often the case, the distant and much revisited Middle Ages, but a more recent time: the 19th century

A century of great social and political changes which gave birth to the modern era and to a time marked by huge and significant transformations in communication, labour and culture.

A time that deeply affected life in Italy and in the world, including the microcosm of the tiny village called Fratta at the time, and now Umbertide, which, through evocative scenery and walkers-on wearing period costumes, will be re-living the exciting moments that characterized the Italian Risorgimento with all the suffering that came with it.

The events scheduled for “La Fratta dell’Ottocento” will begin on the evening of Thursday 13 September and will continue for four days, with the stage being the entire historic centre and they will undoubtedly be approved by the vast public that has always crowded the winding little streets on this occasion.

The many initiatives in the program are grouped into sectors which are mainly cultural events (exhibitions and conferences), entertainment (plays, ballet and music and folk dances) and gastronomy. Here the new element is the contest among the Taverne, in which a qualified jury will attribute scores and judge the best dishes and the best ‘stage design’.

Since this year is also the bicentennial of Giuseppe Garibaldi’s birth, it was inevitable that the image identifying our Event should be precisely the Hero of the Two Worlds with ancient Fratta in the background. And on this occasion the Brass Band will be wearing red shirts and, as usual, the biggest group is represented by the Garibaldi followers (Garibaldini) from the Osteria dei Mille.

Besides exhibitions putting on display the historic relics of the Risorgimento and photographs of 19th century Umbertide, there will also be carriages of the time and a “steam engine” to bear witness to the technological developments that marked that century.

The amusement side will include a very special English football match (which marked the beginning of modern soccer) and a bicycle race using historic bicycles, which recalls the one held towards the end of the century on the current Via Garibaldi, organized by the Mutual Society of Umbertide.

As every other year, we will see military patrols in their flashy Risorgimento uniforms walking the streets of the historic centre. And they will engage not only in gunfights but also in more peaceful, but no less exciting, itinerant shows that will alternate with those organized independently by the Taverne.

THE PALIO OF THE TAVERNE
Within the framework of the Historic Commemoration “ La Fratta dell’Ottocento”, a contest is held among the Associations that run Taverns, Inns and Osterie with the aim of encouraging research into local gastronomic traditions.

LA GAZETTA DELLA FRATTA (THE FRATTA GAZETTE)
As has now become tradition, this year as well, the Historic Association “La Fratta dell’Ottocento” will distribute a single issue of “La Gazzetta della Fratta” with articles the draw inspiration from the episodes, circumstances and curiosities found in the book “Umbertide nel XIX secolo” (Umbertide in the 19th century) by Renato Codovini and Roberto Sciurpa .

GARIBALDI AT FRATTA, IN THE IMAGE BY ARTURO LOZZI
The key image that has characterized the promotional material of the event, namely “Giuseppe Garibaldi on his way through Fratta”, is the work of a young but well established artist born in Umbertide Arturo Lozzi, who last year had drawn a wonderful comic strip for “La Gazzetta della Fratta” telling the story of Cipriano Angioloni, patriot and martyr from the Upper Tiber area. It is some time now that Arturo Lozzi has been working with the most important Italian cartoon publisher, the Bonelli firm, publisher of Tex Willer, for which he has drawn the character of Lazarus Ledd and is producing the well known series called “Dampyr”.
