Schella Marz is a combination of folklore, history and traditions, which in the antique Cimbrian language means “sound march”, when they reawaken nature after the winter lethargy.

Traditionally the ritual takes place on the last three days of February. Men, women and children, some dressed as fairies and witches, ogres and elves, all flood the town streets pulling long lines of varying sized tins and metal bins, tied together with iron wire, which they hit with sticks. The aim is to make a lot of noise to wake spring up.

On Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, in the Piazza II Risorgimento square from 8:00 pm it starts the most important moment of the event, then it concludes by the rogo della vecia or “burning the old lady”, an enormous wood and paper machè dummy is burnt, which symbolises the season that has ended and now has to die.
