🎎 Festival of the Orient in Rome: the pavilions
🎇 Let’s start from the basics: what to expect from this Rome meets the world and, I assume, from the Festival of the Orient which is now being offered throughout Italy?
There are six pavilions, as already mentioned above, but let’s see which ones:
📍 East Festival Pavilion, which includes the Spirituality and Wellness area
🔰 Here you will find a photographic exhibition of Gandhi, the holistic room, the conference space (every day there are presentations and documentaries), the yoga and meditation space, ayurveda and massage courses. There is also a hall for Hindu culture.
📍 Oriental Festival Pavilion with Sushi Village.
🔰 This pavilion is largely aimed at Japan enthusiasts: there are reconstructions of Japanese monuments; kimono (real and fake); manga gadget stands and exhibits. The Sushi village is the novelty of the last year: stands of sushi and sashimi, ramen, gyoza, beer and Japanese sweets, in short, stands of traditional Japanese dishes. But I’ll talk about this area in more detail later, because I have a few things to say.
📍 Festival of the Orient Pavilion and Martial Arts Festival.
🔰 This pavilion has two exhibition stages on opposite sides of the building, a Tibetan cultural area and a Thai cultural area, and tatami areas where martial arts or self-defense lessons are given.
📍 Irish Festival Pavilion.
🔰 Here we have: a reconstruction of Stonehenge (which is in England and not in Ireland, but let’s skip over it); the wild fat area, or the food area dedicated to Angus meat and hamburgers, mainly; the performance stage; four or five stands of gadgets inspired by Harry Potter and magic rather than Ireland.
📍 Country Festival Pavilion and Native American Festival.
🔰 Here they placed a similar Indian camp, a country dance floor and a guy who sells Sicilian cannoli. Don’t ask me why the cannoli. I do not know.
📍 That’s America Pavilion.
🔰 Here they are: an exhibition of big American cars and hippie vans; a wrestling area; a mechanical bull; sellers of leather nails (in the sense that they sell leather jackets, not nails for attaching pictures!) and a few dozen strobe lights here and there. In short, the American stereotype made into a pavilion.
In addition to the six pavilions already described, there are a bucket of outdoor areas with as many independent “festivals”, namely:
🔸 American Motor Village outdoor area + Stuntman Show + Wind Festival (in the sense that they race with cars and there is a hot air balloon)
🔸Latin America Festival outdoor area
🔸External area Greece, Sardinia and Spain; Festival Argentino and Tango (I haven’t understood Sardinia, but it must have crashed together with the cannoli guy)
🔸Holi Festival and Cupid Festival
🔸Street artists area
🔸External Area Africa and Brazil
🔸October Festival, clearly inspired by Oktoberfest
🔸Outdoor area One Thousand and One Nights
