Festa della Madonna della Cintura

Chiesa di San Lorenzo - Farneto
Chiesa di San Lorenzo - Farneto

Where:  Parrocchia di San Lorenzo del Farneto, Via Jussi n. 131 - San Lazzaro di Savena (BO),
: September 5-6 and 9-13, 2015



The tradition of this religious celebration lives again for the 160th edition. The local devotion to Madonna della Cintura (Virgin of the Belt), whose sacred image can be found in the Church of San Lorenzo del Farneto, derives from 1855's cholera outbreak, from which the Farneto hamlet was miracolously spared.


Since then the local community celebrates the old vow with Worship, Vespers and the procession with final Benediction by the priest.


Besides the religious happening, Farneto hosts the town festival, an event including food stands, live music, shows, tombola, charity lucky dip and street market.


The food stand, open from Thursday September 10, serves specialties like nettle-based tortelloni, polenta, crescentine, grilled meat and, Sunday lunch only, lasagne. The stand opens at 7pm every night, on Sunday also at lunchtime.
