The Sons of San Paolino di Nola would like to invite you to
join in and witness history on Sunday, November 2nd in the St
Catherine of Sienna parking lot in Franklin Square at 2:00pm.
We are pleased to announce that for the 1st time in New
York, a Giglio has been constructed with the key element of the
true "Italian Giglio", "La Prima Borda", or "La Borda" for short
which is also known as "The soul of the Lily". This key element,
along with its intricate construction of lightweight
lumber will allow us to "dance" the Giglio the way it was meant
to be danced.
In the spirit of this throwback to authenticity, we will be
hosting "O'Giglio Spogliato" November 2nd, at 2:00pm. For those
who may not know, "Spogliato" means undressed or naked. The
Giglio will not be "dressed" with its normal "face", rather the
bones or bare wood structure will be on display for all to see.
The intent of this afternoon will be to test the new style
authentic structure, demonstrate proper lifting, dancing and
turning techniques. So join us and celebrate this truly
noteworthy event where Giglio authenticity comes back to
So spread the word and make some calls. Friends call
Friends. We need people to come out to help us make this event
vedo l'ora di vederti"
