‘Ndocciata Christmas fire show – Agnone
On December 10th and 24th 2022, one of the greatest European fire shows
On December 1oth and 24th, 2022 in Agnone, in the Province of Isernia., takes place the ‘Ndocciata, one of the greatest fire shows in Europe.
The ‘Ndocciata is a procession where a great number of big torches with a typical fanwise shape, called “‘ndocce”, are carried 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.
The ‘Ndocciata di Agnone has been recognized as an Italian Heritage event for Tradition.

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