An international event dedicated to Ocarina takes place every two years in Budrio, birthplace of this popular wind instrument and meeting point for ocarina enthusiasts, musicians and makers from all over the world. 

The event is dedicated to the atmosphere and sound created by the ocarina. The festival, organized by the municipality of Budrio, will be home to a series of concerts, animated street music, exhibitions, markets, folk dancing and much more. 

Budrio will become the capital of a small population of artists and passionate followers of the ocarina who every two years complete a kind of pilgrimage to see the land of origin of the ocarina, to meet ocarina players from other parts of the world, but above all to play the ocarina together. 

The ocarina is a popular musical wind-instrument in terracotta, made in various dimensions capable of playing concertos in various tonalities. It is precisely a fipple flute, that's to say it has a duct that directs the air onto the edge producing a distinct sound. The instrument resembles to a little beheaded goose, that's the reason for the name "ocarina", derived from the Bolognese dialect word "ucareina". 

People can learn more about the history of the ocarina by visiting the "Museum of the ocarina and terracotta musical instruments" of Budrio, with hundreds of ocarinas, musical instruments, worktools, photographs, discs, scores and documents about local ocarina bands on display.

 

Under the portico of via Marconi there's an ocarina and whistle craft market.
