Dallo “Speciale su Torricella Peligna” realizzato nel 1994 da:
Collezingaro and the “Saise Fountain”
Collezingaro is Torricella’s largest district, inhabited by people actively devoted to agriculture and crafts.
Over the years this suburb has grown tremendously, around the Church and the Bar, the true focus and meeting place.
In August, the “Colle” has a well-supported traditional appointment, the feast day and fair of Sant’Agata, patron saint of Collezingaro. There are also many recreational and sporting events in this suburb which has grown enormously since the craftsmen’s zone was developed. The “massaruoli”, as the inhabitants of Collezingaro are called in Torricella, are also very involved in politics and social events.
They are very attached to their own territory and some years ago they even threatened to split up from the village on religious grounds, it was all sorted out, but they are a proud people, keen to grow, to engage, to belong to Collezingaro, with which everyone, including the Torricellans, is called upon to compare themselves. Obviously to improve, together….
Finally we mention the
fountain of “Saise”
which is next to the Church of Sant’Agata. It is an ancient fountain and it is
believed to have miraculous water, capable of bringing in the breast milk for
women who have just given birth.
