“In diversity, we unite” is one of the countless quotes of our folklore family. Even this year, “Leron” has met everyone’s expectations, confirming the status of Vodnjan as a “city of Istrian folklore”. The Italian group, “Laccio d’amore” from Abruzzo won. They enchanted the audience with an ancient marriage rite. Lots of colourful ribbons tied to a four-meter pole united the dancers in an exciting circle of love.
The other performers, from France, Italy, Romania, Switzerland and Croatia, all offered their various talents, once again demonstrating the importance of cultural diversity. Needless to say, another successful festival completed!
