The earthquake does not stop traditions, the earthquake is scary but for one night the watchword is celebration and prayer. On the evening of 9 December, the most important evening for the people of Valnerina, the night in which the flames of “Li Fauni” illuminate the sky and warm the hearts of all those who have come to enjoy the great fires of Norcia; the earthquake deprived them of their home intimacy but the traditions in mountain villages are stronger than such devastating events.
