Starting point: Villaga, park close to the church
Length: 15 km (3-4 hours)
This mixed route of 15km represent the path of the FIASP Sunday morning non-competitive march or volkmarch of Villaga, 2015 Edition (Fifth Marcia dei Bujeli).
The proposed route runs between the green valley of Villaga, the beautiful medieval village of Toara, touches the charming plateau of Pozzolo and arrives on Monte Tondo Hill to enjoy the view of the valley below and the Euganean Hills.
The sporting event, which takes place annually usually on the first Sunday of March, wants to rebuild the “brusamarzo”, the rural ritual with which until not long ago, in late February and early March, the citizens celebrated the overcoming of winter by lighting fires (also called “bujeli”) through the fields or hills. The bonfires illuminated the darkness symbolizing the victory of light over the long winter nights and the warmth on the cold, they also had a function and meaning as purifiers with a good omen for the new season. In any refreshment point of the march, in memory of this tradition, there is a small little fire or “bujelo”. The bujeli and refreshment are, of course, prepared just on the occasion of the March, once a year.
