Farchie

Olivier  Jules

Lanciano, Italy

Artist's Description

The farchie ritual has its roots in the 1799 French invasion of Abruzzo. During this time the French forces had surrounded the town of Fara. Miraculously, Saint Anthony of Abate is said to have appeared and as he did the oak trees surrounding Fara burst into roaring flames. Seeing this the French soldiers fled and Fara thus sparing the town from certain destruction and ruin.
