The days of San Paolino 2019

On 12 July 1664 the cannons placed on the walls adjacent to the Porta San Donato were fired to honor the memory of San Paolino but, accidentally, the blows were directed against the crowd that was in the area; there were no deaths or injuries and this miracle was attributed to San Paolino.

These are the days dedicated to the patron saint, and the city celebrates them not only with traditional religious celebrations, but also with historical events and re-enactments, musical events, markets and neighborhood celebrations.
