Nights of the Witches – Rifreddo
21-23 October 2022. “Cursed” performances, walks, food.
Le Notti delle Streghe (Nights of the Witches, now in its 13th edition) is a cultural and tourist event that takes place in Rifreddo, in the Province of Cuneo, from October 21st to 23rd 2022.
In 2011, it was named “Meraviglia Italiana” (Italian Marvel) by the House of Representatives.
The event’s intent has always been to promote the local cultural heritage, starting from the Mount Bracco massif, the main setting of folktales about witches, sprites, and other terrifying creatures. In 1495, several witch-hunts involving local women who were believed to be heretics took place in Rifreddo, as evidenced by historical documents held in the Comune’s archives.
The program includes activities for children, nature strolls, walks with theatrical performances, tales and readings of mystery stories, tastings, costumes, free entertainment.
The program will be published on the website>>>
