Ventotene - Festa di Santa Candida

Santa Candida, patrona dell'Isola di Ventotene, è festeggiata il 20 settembre, l'ultimo di 10 giorni di manifestazioni fra il sacro ed il profano. Gli eventi che si concludono dopo aver consumato i tradizionali spettacoli in piazza, i giochi del 19 settembre e la gara di mongolfiere di carta, in cui varie "scuole" si confrontano sulle dimensioni, sulla forma, sulle decorazioni e sulla tecnica di lancio dei palloni, con uno spettacolo di fuochi d'artificio a mare. 

Il 20 settembre, dopo i fuochi d'artificio alle 6.30 del mattino, la Banda, alle 7 fa il giro dell'isola, visitando i giardini, pensioni, ristoranti ed alberghi dove vengono distribuite, alla banda ed a chi la segue, abbondanti colazioni. 

Alle 17, poi, c'è la suggestiva processione della Barca di Santa Candida in cui si narra fu ritrovato il corpo della Santa sulle rive del Pozzillo.
Alla fine l'ultimo volo in notturna della mongolfiera dedicata alla Santa e con i fuochi d'artificio spettacolari sul mare.

Quello che segue è il reportage disegnato in diretta nella tre giorni sull'Isola. Lo scoglio che amo.
