Famous throughout Lake Iseo are the festivities of Santa Croce, which regularly every five years – since 1836 – take place in September in Carzano di Monte Isola, following a vow of the inhabitants who miraculously escaped an epidemic of cholera, through the intercession of the relic of the Holy Cross, kept in the parish.
It is the circumstance in which the whole town for a week is decorated with thousands and thousands of paper flowers, packaged and jealously guarded by every family, until the day of the solemn procession, in the presence of the religious and civil authorities.
This year the great festival, already lovingly awaited and prepared, which attracted thousands of tourists crowding admired in the narrow streets of the town carpeted with flowers, will not take place due to Covid-19.
To remember and offer visitors a memory of what happened in the past, the Pro Loco of Monte Isola, in agreement with the Organizing Committee Pro Festa di Santa Croce and with the patronage of the Municipality of Monte Isola and the Comunità Montana of Sebino Bresciano, to remember the tradition has set up in the halls of the Tourist Office in Peschiera, from 12 September to 31 October, the exhibition entitled ”Santa Croce Festival through Time”, with photographs of past editions, and with examples of traditional floral decorations.
