The Feast of Santa Maria dei Manganelli is a sacred, historical and folkloric event that takes place every year in Guardia Lombardi on 22 June.
Dedicated to a religious figure who has been venerated for centuries by the local community and its many citizens scattered all over the world, as well as by many devotees from the surrounding villages, the Feast of Santa Maria dei Manganelli is held in the church of the same name, reopened for worship in 1993, with a religious procession involving the entire population. During these celebrations, believers meet in a place that, in the past, saw many pilgrims walk to the church dedicated to Our Lady of Manganelli on the first Sunday in May and on the day of the Feast.
A solemn tradition that is renewed annually in Guardia Lombardi, the Feast of Santa Maria dei Manganelli is linked to an important and centuries-old popular devotion.
