08 Dec 2021 Molise -Agnone (Isernia)  Christmas/Easter and Religious celebrations | Folklore/Traditions

‘Ndocciata is one of the greatest fire shows in Europe and it is celebrated in Agnone, in the Province of Isernia.

In 2021 it will take place on December 8th (usually also on Christmas Eve, December 24th), a great number of big torches with a typical fanwise shape, called “‘ndocce”, are carried in procession through the streets of the town.

The carriers wear the traditional shepherd cape and represent the five districts of Agnone.
They try to stand up to the heat and, at the same time, bear the weight of the torches while dancing and spinning in circles.
Women and children open the parade holding the banners of the groups and reenacting scenes of rural life.

Agnone is also home to the oldest bells factory in the world, established around the year 1000.
