Photo: Cannobio Celebrates Sacra Costa



Just look at this gorgeous photo of Cannobio, a few nights ago, taken by local professional photographer Giancarlo Parazzoli. The occasion is the annual celebration in Cannobio, each January 7, called Sacra Costa. The Sacra Costa commemorates a religious event that occurred in 1522, when a painting of the Virgin Mary in the local church was witnessed to be bleeding. To remember this, each year on January 7 thousands of red candle luminaries are lit along the lakefront and through the town, figuratively representing a procession of the painting through the streets.
