Sant' Alessandro - 26:08:09

An annual costume pageant, staged on August 26th by the residents of the Sant'Alessandro district of the main town on the Italian island of Ischia.

The different groups represent peoples who played an important part in local history, going back some 2800 years to Greeks from the cities of Eretria and Chlacis on Euboea, and then Romans, Byzantines, Germans, Normans, Spanish Aragons, French Angevins, and Bourbons and more!
