"Brusa la vecia" the traditional feast of the Epiphany in Verona

Fire at epiphany in Verona.

On January 6, in Verona, is the traditional feast of the Epiphany known to all Verona with the name "Brusa la vecia".

A propitiatory rite dating back to the Celtic population to ward off the bad season and prepare for the rebirth of agricultural activities. With the advent of Christianity, the bonfire is identified with the famous light signal that helped the Magi during their journey.

During this closing feast at the Christmas holidays, a puppet, "la Befana", is burned on a pile of wood. A spectacular meeting place for all the inhabitants of Verona accompanied by music and the traditional representation of the Magi under the star comet.

A day also dedicated to charity thanks to the event "la Befana del Vigile", a collection of food and gifts.
