The Stations of the Cross and the Commemorative Mass

In the first anniversary of the catastrophe, the Tesero Parish Church decided to honour the event with Stations of the Cross along the Stava valley and a commemorative Mass for the Victims.

Since 1986, in the evening of 18th July, the eve of the anniversary of the disaster, the Stations of the Cross are held every year at the Palanca Chapel. During this celebration, religious hymns are sung and the names of the 268 Victims of the Stava disaster are read out aloud.

On 19th July, the anniversary day, another commemorative Mass is celebrated at the Victims’ cemetery by the church of San Leonardo in Tesero.
