200 Madonnari (artisans who produce images of the virgin) from around the world will cover the streets of Curtatone in Lombardy with breath-taking, chalk renditions of the Madonna in a friendly competition that concludes on the 15th with a pyrotechnic performance. During the day, enjoy a plate of cotechino, one of the traditional savory gastronomic dishes of the region or walk the kids over to the amusement park! This family-friendly event will be sure to entertain people of all ages!
