Madonna di Valverde
The focal point of all celebrations falls on 8th May, which marks the feast day of Madonna di Valverde, the Patron Saint of Tarquinia. Since 2010, by the decree of Bishop Chenis, the feast day has been permanently fixed on this date, after 515 years of being celebrated on a flexible date.
At the end of the celebrations, the traditional procession takes place with the revered icon of the Madonna di Valverde, accompanied by the Giacomo Setaccioli band, through the old town and then returning to the sanctuary.
