From May 1st to 3rd, 2015 Budrio, a small town a few kilometers from Bologna, becomes the international capital of ocarina and destination of artists and passionate followers who every two years make a kind of pilgrimage to see the land of origin of this egg-shaped wind-instrument similar to a small goose without head (from there the Italian name Ocarina) invented by the Budrio musician Giuseppe Donati approx. in the mid-19th century.

The festival, organized by the municipality of Budrio, will propose a rich programme of events such as concerts, animated street music, exhibitions, folk dancing and much more.
