Caro Giacomo is a summer festival organized by Cherimus in the town of Perdaxius on the feast day of Saint James, the patron saint of the town, which takes place in July. It was organized annually from 2008 to 2018, and now continues on an intermittent basis.
During each festival, Cherimus invites artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers, and photographers from Italy and all over the world to participate in the event with their work and ideas.
Despite the fact that Caro Giacomo is no longer organized annually, Cherimus continues to invite artists to interact with the town feast on special occasions, enriching the connection with the community of Perdaxius.
