Considered one of the most ancient festivities, the Poplar has been celebrated for more than 100 years and is dedicated to the miracle of the flowered stick of the Holy Pilgrim. The legend goes that it was precisely a Poplar flowered stick that miraculously found, around the year 1000, a pilgrim embedded in a filled ditch, that pilgrim, who then gave the name to the country. To remember this legendary incident, every year all over the country everyone gathers around a big poplar that the 'maggiaoli' with ropes and ladders lift and then plant in the village square.
