SWIFTS & FUN 2017   FESTIVAL 
                   ​
this is the 5th  edition of the Festival Swifts & Fun.  We are a little group of  Italian and Swiss friends associated to different ornithological groups and associations, and we spread hints, share  good practises  and cohordinate the activities of good willing people acting locally, in their own town and village for the protection of swifts in buildings and monuments .  ​ This page is trying  mirroring the ITA <2017 programma> page but is not  updated every day as  I do there.  Please check there for  all the 67 events (not 25  as you see here) , as the ITA page is better organized than this. This edition is reaching 19 provinces in Italy and 1 Canton in Swiss, with a connection to the SWIFTS & FUN 2017 tour in Spain.  In case of interest ask me writing to  rondonecomune@gmail.com  (copy and paste please) asking for translating the program  you like in ENGL or a webpage you are interested .
