Homage to Spring

Traditional Easter Monday flag throwing in Volterra

The homage to spring has ancient origins. Going back even to a pagan ritual when, at vernal equinox, the people of Volterra celebrated the passage from darkness to light, paying homage to nature’s awakening from the long winter, decorating the city with garlands and spring flowers.

With the Homage to Spring, the Historical Group of Flag Wavers presents every year on Easter Monday the reenactment of this ancient pagan ritual, with a hint of folklore and joy.
