This year the feast of San Zopito will be outragious. In 1711 the bones of the holy San Zopito were transferred to Loreto Aprutino. When passing a farmer and his white ox the ox felt down on his knees immediately. This spiritual moment will be remembered and as it has been 300 year the celebrations will last the whole summer. The morning of Pentecost the ox will kneel down again as every year. The village is illuminated completely and in the evening of 11, 12 en 13 June there will be music on the Piazza Garibaldi.

Here you find the program.
