There are two music conferences (17 and 21 October) devoted to Sile, seen as an ancient inland waterway of the pilgrims, and the historic waterway for inland navigation in the Friuli Venezia. To conclude the event, "The Boat of the words" a concert by Donella Del Monaco (24 October) with songs by boat of the '700 and whose main theme songs of old and new languages are Venetian, which sought to evoke the rich atmosphere of cultural exchange between East and West.
