Preci Piantamaggio

Piantamaggio - 30 April

On the afternoon of 30 April the inhabitants of Preci and the surrounding area go to the riverbank in search of a poplar tree to cut down.
The bark is then stripped from the tree, a leafy branch and the Italian fl ag are then fi xed on to it, and it is set up in the town's main square.
This rite is intended to favour the growth of the crops, and in the past it was also an occasion for courting. After the pole has been set up, there are refreshments for everyone.
