HALLOWEEN 2013 AT BORGO A MOZZANO

Post by Gala Placidia on Fri Oct 11, 2013 7:59 am

Halloween was not a traditional celebration in Italy; however, times do change, and the clever people from Borgo a Mozzano, between Lucca and Bagni di Lucca, have managed to create a fabulous festival that attracts lots of people from all over Italy. I have been told that there is a regular group coming all the way from Sicily! Borgo a Mozzano is a lovely old town on the banks of the Serchio River and they have a great asset, ideal setting for this festival: the Devil's Bridge or Ponte della Maddalena, a glorious medieval bridge built by Countess Matilde di Canosa, "the Great Countess" back in the 11th Century, which allowed pilgrims and sick people to come to Bagni di Lucca (then Bagni di Corsena) to take the curative waters.
In any case, here is the 2013 Program: Halloween 2013 Borgo a Mozzano

If anyone is planning to attend, one of the main features is the recreation of the legend of Lucida Mansi and her pact with the Devil The Legend
Yes, the legend is set in Lucca and surrounding areas; however, Borgo a Mozzano has "The Devil's Bridge" Twisted Evil
