Feast of the Assumption in Torre Piazza, mid-August

The Feast of the Assumption is one the oldest traditions of our village. The first written records about it date back to 1597. At that time, the Feast consisted of religious rituals, which mainly involved the girls of the village and of big meals. The feast has considerably changed since then; however, it has not lost its deepest meaning. Masses are celebrated in the old parish of the Assumption and meals followed by music and dances are organized in the picturesque setting of the castle ruins, these mainly aimed at young people. The latest editions of the feast have been enriched by the introduction of an exhibition of paintings and photographs by local artists (from both Torre Mondovì and the surrounding area). The exhibition is held in the renovated building of the Confraternita dei Disciplinanti (the Flagellant Confraternity).
