Settembre lucchese 2020

The month of September is particularly dear to the people of Lucca for the celebration of the feast of the Holy Face, the Holy Cross that has protected the city for centuries and that also this year will be the protagonist of the feast of September 14, even if in reduced form.

The current situation has in fact led to the cancellation of the traditional moments of celebration, moments of sharing and meeting, but there will be many appointments for September Lucchese, from religious festivals to fairs, markets, shows and Luna Park.
