All along the streets of the village, every year, in the month of August, more than two hundred students, coming from all the Aosta Valley schools of wood sculpture, carving and turning and schools of stone pottery and wrought iron, proudly present the results of their works. The exhibitors take part in this fair with enthusiasm, as it is the third most important fair, at a regional level, after the ancient fair of Sant’Orso and the fair at Donnas. It is also a festival which relives past memories and celebrates ancient cuisine and music, as well as Man’s close bonds with the mountains.
