Cancelled 'till Spring



 To All the Supporters of The Sons of San Paolino Di Nola,


The scheduled test lift for Saturday, Novemeber 8th has been
                                          Hi Everyone!

Mother Nature threw us a right hook! The Sons of San Paolino regret to inform everyone that this coming Saturday's, November 8th Giglio Spogliato has been cancelled. The inclement weather that blew through the area with sustained winds of 40 - 55 mph bringing down trees all over Long Island also damaged the Giglio structure and in the best interest of everyone who planned to attend, we decided to cancel the event. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused anyone. On a more positive note, we do plan on building and testing a new structure with "La Borda" in time for our June feast. We like to Thank everyone for understanding.

"La Borda"


The Sons of San Paolino di Nola would like to invite you to join in and witness history on Sunday, November 2nd in the St Catherine of Sienna parking lot in Franklin Square at 2:00pm.New Giglio Base

We are pleased to announce that for the 1st time in New York, a Giglio has been constructed with the key element of the true "Italian Giglio", "La Prima Borda", or "La Borda" for short which is also known as "The soul of the Lily". This key element, along with its intricate construction of lightweight lumber will allow us to "dance" the Giglio the way it was meant to be danced.

In the spirit of this throwback to authenticity, we will be hosting "O'Giglio Spogliato" November 2nd, at 2:00pm. For those who may not know, "Spogliato" means undressed or naked. The Giglio will not be "dressed" with its normal "face", rather the bones or bare wood structure will be on display for all to see.New Giglio 2015

The intent of this afternoon will be to test the new style authentic structure, demonstrate proper lifting, dancing and turning techniques. So join us and celebrate this truly noteworthy event where Giglio authenticity comes back to America.

So spread the word and make some calls. Friends call Friends. We need people to come out to help us make this event successful!
