Raffaele Boccioni and Cecilia Forlani, parents of the artist Umberto Boccioni, hailed from Morciano. The Futurist painter, though born in 1882 in Reggio Calabria, acquired family traditions, culture and speech of the morcianesi and remained unchanged in him, despite long periods spent in various Italian cities.

This city-wide festival will create a synergy incorporating performances, poetry, music and dance with its shops, bakeries, restaurants and hairdressers.
