Special Events 

Summer Music is an international chamber music festival that takes place in late August/early September every year (2012 marks its 45th anniversary). The Festival of the Assunta is a lively event held August 14 and 15, when the violent attack of the Saracens and the Madonna's miraculous intervention are reenacted, accompanied by much noise and fanfare by Positanese of all ages. The histrionics include a fake fire and colorful historic costumes.
