“Un Salto nel Passato” 2014
Baveno and its famous event “A Plunge into the Past”
The event “Un Salto nel Passato” is now in its eleventh edition. Important goal for a group of friends! Visitors estimated in recent editions were more than 20,000 people; this event became one of the most important of Verbania’s province.
Sunday 14th December 2014 in the centre of the lakeside town Baveno in the afternoon and in the evening all “inhabitants will go back in time”!
As tradition the path will be lit with torches, which will revive narrow alleys, hidden courtyards and characteristic corners. Recreation of blacksmith’s shop, revival of stonecutter’s art, patience of washerwomen and much more lead visitors feel emotions that today life has deleted. In every corner groups of people stop to talk, to drink or enjoy something together in a scenario where time is less frenetic. Those who want to contribute to the event, in the “banks” along the path can buy the “Frànc” (typical money of Baveno), that will allow them to drink and eat typical dishes.
