Cavalcata dei Re Magi


In some Swiss Italian villages, the 6th of January, is the day of the Wise Man. In this occasion a representation of the arrival of the Wise Men is shown. They are wise and enlightened men that bring symbolic offers: gold, incense and myrrh. The Orient mystery that they bring is recreated between sumptuous golden costumes, decorated mounts followed by walks-on. Usually they distribute gifts to the children.
