ROSSO, BIANCO & BLUES - from August 28th to October 30th 2010

During Autumn season, from August 28th to October 30th, ten events called Bianco Rosso & Blues takes place, crossing the paths of winemaking and the blues. All ten events have great appeal having at the centre stage not only the notes and the protagonist of Soul, Blues, Jazz and Folk music, but also the aromas and the flavours of the very particular wine and the gastronomic specialities of Trasimeno lake and Umbria region. The events follow an itinerary through the most beautiful spots of the lake and Perugia territory, including museums, theatres and historical palazzos, with the presence of some of the best wine producers of the area, and have as a common thread the connection between good music and good food. The festival highlights the convivial aspect of musical events through a different pairing of food and wine at every date, focusing on local wines and foods. The protagonist of these events are the places, the artist and the wines. Thanks to the partnership between Trasimeno Blues and La Strada del Vino dei Colli del Trasimeno its possible this marriage of music and food that is sustained by local recipes and local products, from lake fish to legumes, extra virgin olive oil and cold meats. The fashionable Palazzos della Corgna in Città della Pieve and Castiglione del Lago, the suggestive atmosphere of the “Pieve del Vescovo” Castle in Corciano or the Lambardi Tower in Magione, the amazing small squares of Paciano, Panicale and Tuoro, the historical sites of The Glass Museum in Piegaro and the Medieval Rock in Passignano or Palazzo Malizia in Torgiano, are the scenarios for the great sound of Italian and international artists like Fabrizio Poggi & Chicken Mambo, Raphael Gualazzi Band, Herbie Goins & Davide Pannozzo, Tia Architto Trio, Francesco Piu Trio, Veronica & The Red Wine Serenaders, Elisabeth Cutler, Awa Li, Dago Red, Kozmic Blues, The Black Sheep Duo. Bianco Rosso & Blues festival is a unique chance to enjoy the romantic atmosphere that Trasimeno Lake offers during the Autumn season with its sunsets, aromas and beautiful colours: the ideal spot for the Soul music.
