Each year in Carloforte, since ten years, the appointment with the festival of Girotonno is renewed. And 2012 won’t be an exception. A meeting with an ancient tradition of tuna fishing by the tonnara which, the area of Isola di San Pietro, is deep rooted in the whole population.
Girotonno 2012 will represent also the chance to meet other costal Mediterranean cultures linked to the tuna fishing and it’s also a chance to discover new and unique blend of culinary flavors, with the soundtrack of folkloric music and performances summoning the old seamen lifestyle.
