    Add to calendar 2021-02-06 2021-02-06 Europe/Rome Feast of the Gnaga and Review of Mountain Wooden Faces They called it Gnaga, is nothing strange, only a mask, but not a mask alone. The Gnaga is a dual character that consists of the shape of an elderly lady by bulky wood bases, forced despite the age to carry on his shoulders a young boy, smiling happily. The rite of the carnival, which stems from the ancient agrarian rites made to propitiate the fertility of the land and the abundance of the harvest, allows through its trasgressivo step of entering into a new life. The kids dress themselves up like women, the old Gnaga carries a couple, hope that the winter ports always spring, and a great desire to make noise around the country. On the occasion of the traditional feast of Gnaga unwinds the Review of Wooden Faces of the Carnivals of Mountain, in the aim of revaluating the common dolomites tradition of Wooden Mask. Fornesighe
