In early September Napoli celebrates the festival of the Madonna of Piedigrotta. It goes back to 1800s and combines a song contest, float parades and musical performances during 10 days of fun that end with a spectacular fireworks show. The song contest is really popular across Italy and featured some big names in the past. The celebrations usually take place around September 8.
