La Grande Festa del Cristo - "La Città nella Città" 400 anni di storia
The 2023 edition of the Feast of Cristo sees an intense and varied programme of events, initiatives and activities which involve many associations who work during the year to make the Cristo Neighbourhood a lively place and even more attractive at this time.
There will be school and association stands, stalls and food and wine stands, a Luna Park, music and entertainment for all ages: debates on themes of city life are also planned.
This great feast is a way to renew a tradition of sharing recreational and fun moments, to protect knowledge and values so they will not run out during a generation and be transmitted to future generations.
For further information see the material in "Attachments".
