Madonna di Canneto at Settefrati
The Madonna di Canneto appeared near Settefrati and she is the town’s Patron Saint. If you look carefully at the photo of the main altar you will see behind a covered niche where the statue of the Madonna remains hidden for most of the year. At the time of the celebration, she is placed on a golden throne and carried by the faithful up the mountain to the place where she appeared. She stays there for 4 days then is returned to her niche for another year. I apologise for the quality of the photos, it was snowing that day and I forgot to take the camera off the ‘macro’ setting I had been using to take photos of birth certificates in City Hall.
