The first weekend after September 8 Our Lady of Grace is celebrated. On Saturday, the traditional “Descent” takes place. This is the moment when the image of the Madonna is removed from the altar and displayed to the faithful. During the evening the streets are covered with pictures made from coloured marble powder, salt and sawdust.

On Sunday, there is the solemn procession through the streets of the town, passing over the artistic ‘carpets’, and Monday is then dedicated to the feast of Santa Maria Goretti. The whole organization is run by the Brotherhood of Our Lady of Grace and alongside the religious festivals are held concerts, fireworks, exhibitions, poetry contests.
