Conflenti – Colorful balloons and thousands of faithful greeted the exit of the statue of Our Lady of the oak of Visora in Conflenti. They are days of celebration in the country of Reventino: Today, after the exit from the shrine, elected to minor Basilica as granted by Pope Francis, was held the procession through the streets of Conflenti, accompanied by religious authorities, military and civil and the band Valley of the Shad.
This year is the first time that a copy of the statue was used for the traditional procession. A necessary work, wanted by the Pastor Don Adamo Castagnaro, because the original statue, being a work of art cataloged at the superintendent, is subject to constraints of the state.
The last Sunday of August, traditionally, is the day dedicated to the Madonna and faithful from all over the country but also from the district, come to celebrate this moment so felt that ends with the relocation of the statue on the altar. Not only religious celebrations, but also convivial moments: in these days it is held, in fact, also the fair with its stalls and all the sounds, flavors and smells that characterize these festive days.
