Feast of the town patroness

city centre

Sant'Agata Bolognese (BO)

Celebration for the patroness of Sant'Agata Bolognese. In this occasion the town is filled with stalls of merchants, typical products and other local delicacies. All this is enlivened by travelling shows. In the houses the tradition is to prepare the Ciambella di Sant'Agata, a homemade cake (doughnut) called "brazadèla tèndra” (soft cake) to distinguish it from the “brazadela dura“ (hard cake), prepared with the same ingredients but with different proportions and workmanship.

Saint Agatha is the patron saint of women with breast cancer, because of the martyrdom that was inflicted by the amputation of the breast. She is also the patron saint of bell-founders and several Italian municipalities, such as Catania, in Sicily, where she died on February 5, 261.

This year the day of the Patroness feast is at the same time as the celebration of the second anniversary of the Farmers' Market (Al marchè dal cuntadein), which is offered every first Sunday of the month.

The event is also an occasion to visit the historic centre of Sant'Agata Bolognese, rich in historic monuments and with the Lamborghini Museum inserted into the circuit of Terra di motori (Land of Motors).
