After a year of forced closure due to the pandemic, in the streets of Rignano sull'Arno returns the Feast of Forgiveness with a program that follows most of the traditional events by proposing a series of initiatives that will take place from Friday 24 until Tuesday 28 September 2021.
The Mayor Daniele Lorenzini presents this year's edition as follows: "With great mutual satisfaction, the municipal administration and the Pro Loco Rignano sull'Arno managed to offer our citizens an interesting program in a particularly difficult period for organization of events.
