Bruciare la vecchia (Burn the old)

born the old

Bruciare la vecchia,( Brusà la ecia in dialetto locale) è una tradizione del territorio bresciano e in Franciacorta è molto sentito, tanto che ogni paese ha il proprio falò, se non più di uno e ovviamente si approfitta della ricorrenza per mangiare e bere in compagnia alla luce del fuoco. La tradizione antica, così come conservata ora, prevedeva l'organizzazione di una processione per il paese attraverso il quale le persone partecipanti, armate di qualsiasi utensile facesse un rumore assordante, dovevano passare portando con loro il fantoccio della vecchia per poi giungere in un campo incolto per darle fuoco. Tutto ciò per celebrare la fine della stagione invernale e l'inizio della primavera, per "bruciare" le colpe e i peccati passati e anche per risollevare gli animi dei quaresimanti.La vecchia viene bruciata sempre e solo il giovedi di metà quaresima, che quest'anno cadrà domani 7 marzo. Se non avete un falò, o nessuno vi ha invitato al suo o, ancora, se preferite partecipare ad una cerimonia in grande, vi segnalo quella che si terrà a Ospitaletto presso l'oratorio alle ore 20:30.

"Burn the old", is a tradition in the area of ​​Brescia and Franciacorta is felt so much, so that each town has its own bonfire, if not more than one and of course takes advantage of the occasion to eat and drink together in the firelight. The ancient tradition, as preserved now, provided for the organization of a procession for the town through which the persons involved, armed with any tool would make a deafening noise, had to pass, bringing with them the old puppet on its way in a field uncultivated for it on fire. All this to celebrate the end of winter and beginning of spring, to "burn" the sins and the sins of the past and also to lift the spirits of the of the faithful during Lent. The old is burned only ever on Thursday in mid-Lent, which this year will be tomorrow, March 7. If you do not have a bonfire, or no one has invited you, or even if you prefer to take part in a big ceremony ,we mark that will be held in Ospitaletto at the oratory at 8:30 pm.
