Every 5 years the villages of Carzano and Novale di Monte Isola are colored with magnificent paper flowers made manually by the inhabitants. The 2020 edition of the Feast of Santa Croce will be held from Monday 14 to Sunday 20 September.

The event, also known as the Flower Festival, celebrates the recurrence of the end of cholera. According to tradition, in fact, during the 19th century, the inhabitants of the two villages, affected by the serious epidemic, asked for the grace of the Holy Cross, promising to honor it with a grandiose five-year celebration.

The centerpiece of the events is traditionally September 14, the day on which the Liturgy celebrates the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross; in the small village the procession takes place with the S. Relic of the Cross of Christ, all in an atmosphere of the highest charm at any time of day or night.
