Positano Fireworks

Ferragosto on the Amalfi Coast

August 15 is a very special day for locals (and for all the Italian people, especially those living in the South).. just think that they usually begin the celebrations in the morning! There is the tradition of collecting pierced stones on the beach because they say they have a thaumaturgical effect
The celebration continues on the table, with typical dishes people refuse to miss on this day of celebration: chocolate eggplants, eggplant parmigiana, squid and potatoes, and the unmissable watermelon. This is eaten also on the 14th, a little before midnight, to celebrate the beginning of Ferragosto. 
Celebrations go on all day long, with many events on the streets of the Coast, but the clou of the day is undoubtedly the firework shows that brightens the Positano and Maiori nights with their many colors.

  • On August 15 on the Amalfi Coast you celebrate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Positano, Our Lady of the Assumption whom the patronal church is dedicated to. In Maiori they celebrate Our Lady of the Sea, and many celebrations also happen in Pastena di Amalfi, on Erchie’s Marina, in Cesarano di Tramonti and in Dragonea (Vietri sul Mare). 
  • This celebration is a very ancient feast, made before the Christian cult of the Mother of God. The name Ferragosto derives from the Latin Feriae Augusti, meaning “holiday of the reign of Augustus”, and it is precisely to the Roman Empires that this holiday is traced back.
