Piera's Holy Christ Festival
Piera's Holy Christ Festival is based on a legend. Do you know how the legend goes?
According to the legend of the Holy Christ, one year when there was a severe drought, a pilgrim went to Piera in search of bread. One of the local women told him that they did not have any wheat and he predicted that if they took the statue of the Holy Christ out in a procession, it would rain again. And this is what happened. Since 1688, Piera has been celebrating this festival in honour of the Holy Christ. We also know that the fair existed in the 30s with an agricultural exhibition. Nowadays, there is a multisectorial show with 200 exhibitors.
