Cavalcade of the Three Kings of Premana

On January 5, in the evening before the Epiphany, in the village of Premana in Valsassina, takes place the traditional Cavalcade of the Three Kings.

A characteristic procession parades through the streets of the village, passing through the main places and squares, led by the Three Kings and the Comet Star, that is the Three Kings on horseback impersonated by young people of the village, who sing together with the participants the “Singing of the Three Kings”. The procession ends in Piazza Consiglio, the heart of the town, where the three Kings will offer their gifts to the Child Jesus and where a suggestive living nativity scene will be set up.

It is a collective rite that represents the belonging to a community still attached to its culture.
