 NEW YEAR IN SIENA  a dive into the Past

Yes! In Siena, we  celebrate the New Year also on March 25!
The modern calendar comes from Pope Gregory XIII ‘s will  who adopted a single rule for measuring time. Think about how it could be to use a different calendar in our world! Before 1582 in Siena, the New Year was celebrated on March 25 because it matched the day of the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary. On same date it took place the Feast of the ancient Hospital and  of its church which was dedicated to the Virgin of the Annunciation. For that day  Siena municipality  donated votive candles, presented barn workers  and expose religious relics in the Chapel of the Vow.
This year Siena celebrates “his” New Year on March 25 with the following program:
4.30 pm meeting of the historical parade and  city authorities in the church of SS. Annunziata
5 pm  procession from the church of SS. Announced to the Public Palace in Piazza del Campo
5.30 inside the Public Palace LECTIO MAGISTRALIS proclaimed by Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi.
