The 1263 Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena
In 1263, during a pilgrimage to Rome, a Bohemian priest stopped in Bolsena to celebrate mass. During the Eucharist whilst breaking the consecrated Host, he was consumed with doubt about the authenticity of the Host containing the body of Christ. At this precise moment some drops of blood fell from the host and stained his frock (actually preserved in the Cathedral Dome of Orvieto) and on some altar stones - also preserved in the precious equerries in the Cathedral of St. Christine in Bolsena.

During this festivity the streets of Bolsena are strewn with a rich floral carpet inlaid with geometrical designs, symbols and spiritual scenes.

The “Macchina di Santa Rosa ” (the “machine of Saint Rose)
 

3 September
Is the most spectacular religious event of Viterbo. On the 3rd of September, an imposing illuminated “tower” (macchina) is carried in procession by 100 porters, the Facchini. This celebration is a tribute to the patron saint of the city, St. Rose, who lived in the 13th century and whose memory is evoked in this unique celebration by the citizens of Viterbo.

It is a remarkable feast noted for its beauty, sense of occasion and emotion.

The macchina di Santa Rosa consists of a tower lit by torchlights, constructed of light modern materials like fibreglass, which has replaced in recent times the traditional materials like iron, wood and paper-pulp. It is 30m in height and weighs 5 tons.

On the evening of 3rd of Sept it is lifted and carried on the shoulders of hundreds of strong men called “facchini”.

It is carried in a distance of a kilometer, along the narrow streets and squares of the city centre, followed by a crowd “in delirium”, whose hearts are full of emotion, pride, happiness and fear. In any case every description of this event differs and the written word and camera can not accurately portray the sentiments, sense of occasion and emotions. It has to be experienced personally as each year creates new, differing and lasting impressions.
