The procession of May 3

saturday 3 may 2025 in Santa Fiora, Grosseto


The procession of May 3

Among all the spring festivities of the territory of Santa Fiora, it emerges the recurrence, still intact, of the three of May, linked to the cult of the "miraculous crucifix", but also to the rituals of the life cycle. The Festa Santafiorese, which also combines a great fair, is composed of various moments. Firstly, the ritual of the Cedars that, by ancient custom, the young men of the country offer to the girls as a pledge of love. The women Santafioresi, instead, together with those of the neighboring countries, go to the parish where the crucifix, is offered to the rite of the kiss and on his body are drusciati rings, chains and treccioli (coloured cloth ribbons), which will then be worn for Blessing.
