-
1986 THE CHESNUTS' FEAST


The 6th of october 1985, the Holy Mass was celebrated in the open air in MICOTTIS and a cross was blessed , and then dismantled and taken up to the mountain above the village of MICOTTIS.


An energy generator wirth an authonomy of several hours lightened the cross with neon lights and was visible from far away. The cross was lightened on occasion of every holiday and this still goes on nowadays. Later on, this event was completed with the Chesnuts' Feast . The little movies in the multimedia
“ croce-I”; “croce-2 festa” e “croce-3 castagne” illustrate these events.


In 1986, the 28th of September, the Chesnuts' Feast took place in Micottis ; the short film in the multimedia,
“festa delle castagne 1986” presents this event. Another short film about the Chesnuts' Feast taking place in Micottis is dated 20th October 2002 ; see the movie in the multimedia “festa delle castagne 2002”


Over the last centuries, chesnuts were very important for the nurrishment of the population, which was very poor in these areas, and this is the reason why it is still celebrated today.

Our fiends from Sammardenchia, friends since the twinning between Sammardenchia and Micottis, participate at everyone of these Feasts with enthousiasm, joyfully and with music.
