  • I have seen on many occasions, even inside the museo civico in Viterbo the various projects that have taken place over the years for the design and subsequent implementation of the macchina di Santa Rosa, this gigantic structure topped with the tattoo of St. Rosa, reach to 100 balls porters if you undergo harsh tests to pass tests very heavy , and they compete to supurarle each year. This means that this religious manifestation is much felt by the Vitervesi that so pay homage every year in early September in Santa Rosa. O Santa Rosa machine which is 30 metres high and is being rebuilt again every five years is really great

  • The Macchina of Santa Rosa is the tool that rises above the roofs of Viterbo the statue of Santa Rosa, who is the patron saint of the city. It has ancient origins, is made of lightweight metals (i.e. fiberglass), has a height of about 30 meters long and weighs 51 pounds. At its top there is the statue of the Saint. The representation can be seen in the evening of 3 September each year when the machine is carried in procession (at shoulder) by 100 men, called "Porters" for a distance of approximately 1 km just over one kilometre. The party, by 2013, is part of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
