Praiano dal 30 luglio al 4 agosto 2010

Every year, since 1606, Praiano inhabitants used to decorate its balconies, terraces, gardens with lighting system composed by wax and oil. This custom handed from 1599, when Dominican Monks came to the Monastery of Santa Maria a Castro, placed on the hill above Praiano."Luminaria di San Domenico" is an Event which comes true every year from August 1st to August 4th to celebrate San Domenico.On August 4th , very early in the morning (the first Mass is at 6.30 am), Praiano celebrates San Domenico's Festival."Luminaria di San Domenico" has a particular meaning: Domenico's Mother, before giving him birth, she dreamed a dog with a torch in his mouth to burn the world. So when Domenico was born he had to diffuse "God's word all over the world".
