In Bova every year there is a unique event of its kind: the "Palm Sunday" or Persephoni or, as some like to call them, Pupazze. It consists in the creation of beautiful female figures with intertwined olive leaves, flowers, first fruits and colored ribbons. These figures are connected to the prehistoric rites of Mother Earth, the passage of Spring, the cycle of life, the goddesses of agriculture Demeter and Persephone. With the coming of Christianity, the ritopagano was not abandoned, but was integrated into the day of the Palms; today they are made to celebrate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. In the weeks leading up to Palm Sunday, several local families gather and work begins on the creation of the "Parme", workshops are opened to allow young people, children, schools and anyone who wants to try their hand at the weaving. .
