Trastevere, a delightful district in the Italian capital of Rome, is host to an annual fete in July named the ‘Festa de Noantri’ – loosely translated to mean the ‘Festival of We Others’. Trastevere is often described as being ‘off-the-beaten-track’ and was known historically as the ‘real Rome’, with past generations claiming themselves to be the ‘true Romans’.
The festival dates back to the start of the 16th century and includes the religious celebration of the Madonna of Mount Carmel. The main event is a procession of a decorated statue of the Virgin Mary
carried through the streets of Trastevere. Rome locals join in the procession and the statue remains at its final destination at S. Crisgono’s church for eight days before the return journey. For those eight days, as the statue remains within the church, the district celebrates with fairs and decorations line the streets.
