- Medieval Bonfire -
Anthony (St. Antonio Abate) is the farmers' and farm animals' protector, so in the ancient time, the rural society used to worship the Saint with a big bonfire, in order to have a good harvest and to celebrate the daylight, which, slowly, makes every day last a little longer after the winter solstice.
Nowadays the tradition is still on in the cascine (typical farms in the norther Italy) and it's a good occasion to see an authentic medieval bonfire, lighted up by medieval archers, to drink some good mulled wine and to eat one last slice of Panettone.Of course traditional music and dances won't miss...are you ready to learn something new about the milanese culture?
