Brienza, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy
The village of Brienza is one of the most interesting Medieval sites in Basilicata. Many churches enrich the artistic and cultural heritage of the area and bear witness to the way in which religion used (and still uses) to dictate the rhythm the daily life of the inhabitants of Basilicata. The most interesting sacred rites take place during the feast of the Holy Crucifix (first Sunday of May and third Sunday of September), celebrated through the representation of the “Incontro” and the “Volo dell’Angelo”.
From 2 to 5 August 2012, the event “Nights in the Castle – Rebel years 1967/1977” will take place, enlivening the Medieval town and the Castle thanks to many international artists, exhibitions, seminars, meetings, book presentations and many other events describing the “10 years of agitation” that changed the history of the World.
