September
 

Autumn's officially here at the end of the month, but the Italian summer continues, even though the days are getting shorter.
Not to be missed: the Procession of Santa Rosa and the Macchina di Santa Rosa in Viterbo.
For a real taste of the country: Cellere Fra Natura e Tradizione.


Procession of Santa Rosa
Viterbo
September 2nd. A historical procession, when the city authorities and the clergy made their way together to pay homage to the patron saint of this city.

La Macchina Di Santa Rosa
Viterbo
September 3rd. A tower some 30 metres high and lit by a thousand flames is carried on the shoulders of 100 "facchini" (porters) through the narrow streets of this Mediaeval city. A unique sight repeated every year over the centuries (records go back to 1654). The meaning of the tower is the translation of the saint's body from the church of Santa Maria del Poggio to its present resting place, the church of San Damiano.
