In Jenne is celebrated Saint Anthony “Favaro” in, a peasant tradition maintained over time by the entire population of the small mountain village, celebrated as usual with the traditional procession in honor of the saint through the streets of the village and the blessing of the animals.

The weekend following the 17th of January is organized the festival of polenta and the fallone, which celebrates the corn, one of the most appreciated local products produced in the area for generations. The polenta is prepared as before, cooked inside “Jo Callaro” and then tasted in the company inside the scifa, the polenta dish par excellence, seasoned with sprouts or pork sausages. The fallone is a pizza made with a mixture of corn and water, cooked in the old wood-burning oven of the village dating back to 1751.
