Nights of the Witches – Rifreddo
20-22 October 2023. “Cursed” performances, walks, food.
From October 20th to 22nd 2023, the municipality of Rifreddo, in the Province of Cuneo, organizes the Notti delle Streghe (Nights of the Witches), now in its 14th edition.
The Nights of the Witches’s intent is to promote the local cultural heritage, starting from the Mountbracco massif, the main setting of folktales about witches, sprites, and other terrifying creatures. And in 1495, several witch-hunters accused local women of being heretics, as evidenced by historical documents held in the Comune’s archives.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.
