Positano: Montepertuso and Nocelle are preparing to celebrate Maria SS. of Graces. The hamlets of Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast, are preparing to celebrate the Madonna delle Grazie, for which Deputy Mayor Margherita Di Gennaro has assured us that they are working to prepare a great event.

Perhaps even more than before, in fact, it is an important event after the end of the state of emergency linked to the pandemic and which forced the traditional party to be canceled for two consecutive years. This year, therefore, also aims to be a signal of rebirth and recovery, returning to citizens and tourists one of the most awaited and most beautiful festivals of the Amalfi coast.

Lighting is taken care of by community volunteers. The floral decoration is cared for and offered by the Posaflora company.

On the occasion of the celebrations, the road to Montepertuso and Nocelle will be closed to traffic from 18.00 to 2.00. The Mobility AmalfiCoast company will carry out a shuttle service departing from Parco Cascone and the Bivio di Montepertuso.

The aforementioned shuttles will be available from July 1st from 6.00pm to 1.00am. On 2 July they will be active from 6.00 to 13.00 and then from 17.00 to 1.30.
