One Big Colours, the first festival of colours in Fabriano, Le Marche Region, Italy.
Colours are expression of union, peace and harmony amongst cultures, traditions and ethnic groups.
Why a festival of colours?
This initiative takes inspiration from HOLI, the Indian festival celebrating Spring awakening, triumph of truth over evil, and dissipation of cast differences. Our party, free from the Hindu connotation, aims to encourage cultural and creative integration fighting social, ethnical and cultural disparities, yet enhancing individuality through the ritual of coloration.
By painting ourselves in a rainbow of colours, not only we erase all the differences and destroy our mental barriers of getting dirty or making mistakes -- obstacles to the creative process, but we also enrich ourselves of a new multicultural identity.

How does it work?
On the town square of Collamato, a small village in the countryside near Fabriano, every guest will be given one pack (or more) of colour. The coordinated launch of colours, followed by the ritual of coloration, will open the dances to the sound of multi-ethnic music. There will be various activities, including mandala paintings and colour war.
Why to support this project?
Even a small donation will help us realise this event, which has been planned and arranged by a group of volunteers to favour cultural integration in our city.
How shall we spend your money?
Most of the donations will be used to pay for the colours, which are coming from India. The rest of the money will be used for recording (incl. editing), marketing, DJ, etc.
