The First Italian Owls' Festival will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2007 in Lombardy, a village near the beautiful town of Bergamo in North Italy.

The Festival is organized by the "Rangers Italia Association" www.rangersitalia.it (More information can be found on this site in Italian)

The festival will also be an opportunity for all owl-lovers to meet up.

In the world there are research lovers, wood/glass/stone-owl pieces collectors. There are those who love to observe these animals in natural habitats, those who write about them in children or adult tales having owls, barn owls or Little Owls as protagonists, those who paint owls, those who illustrate books with amazing black and white drawings or water colours. There are sculptures and people who build kites and toy planes in the shape of owls.

All these different categories of owl-lovers will be there at the First Italian Owls' Festival and you are invited too!

Bergamo is a beautiful city with ancient sites.

The Alps are only a few kilometres away and the programme includes night excursions to see Little Owls, Scops Owls, Nightjars, Tawny Owls, Tengmalm's Owls, and other birds!

There will be an important international conference (with English translation), art and photography exhibitions having European owls as protagonists!

There will also be a book exhibition with books on owls from all over the world!

There are people who make incredible owl-shaped objects in wood, glass, ceramics, stone, leather and other materials.

There will be shows for children, meetings with writers and ornithologists, day and night excursions, raptors from rehabilitation centres will be set free and there will be a special space for the promotion of Harry Potter, Martin Hocke and Kathryn Lasky books.

You can download the official documents and all the information on the website: www.rangersitalia.it

Those who are interested can write to us and will receive an English newsletter about the Festival.

At the end of March the first official programme (in Italian, English and French) of the festival will be available.
