SPORT: Inside “DE VECCHIS” public park you can find a soccer field, a volleyball court, a tennis court, a training route and other entertainments. A city gym is also at your disposal.
EVENTS: Many events are organized by the Town Council and/or No profit Associations.
Worthy of remark: The Carnival, The Infiorata (street flower decorations - on Corpus Domini Sunday), The Fruit Festival (during the first weekend of August), Maialata in Piazza (roasted pork in town - the days around the feast of the Assumption on August 15), the Autumn Festival (on the third or the fourth Sunday of September)

OF GREAT INTEREST: The ways of Faith. The nearby church called “Madonna della Fede”, about 800 m. far from our farm, can be reached by foot along a dirt read inside the estate. The church is a small masterly restored 15 century building in good state. The entrance is eastly oriented while its small abse is westwards oriented.The entrance is eastly oriented while its small abse is westwards oriented. Two small side chapels give its plan a latin cross shape. Inside, just above the main altar, you can admire a wonderful 15 century painting representing the Virgin Mary. Inside the church are sheltered two precious relics: a thorn of the crown of Jesus Christ during his Passion and, in the same reliquary, a little piece of stone from the column where our Lord was tied to be scourged.
