    In a note sent, FIAR explains that it relies on “valuing its territory and the community in which it lives, as a stage and vehicle for the exaltation of tradition, always looking to the forefront. Search the streets, in places for conventional and unconventional shows, that an entire village is simultaneously welcoming and welcoming”. Admissions to limited-capacity shows are free, and donations are encouraged, by prior reservation, from 15 June. The use of a mask is mandatory, as well as the maintenance of social distancing rules.
