LOGO
The event's representative logo, designed by the artist Loredana Sabatino, is a lily that symbolically unites the two figures of Maria and Rosalia. The lily symbolizes the purity that links the two women and, at the same time, is the historical emblem of Petralia Sottana. The Rock Lily, as the town is often called, blossoms in a series of iconic activities capable of making this 400th anniversary special in the Madonie area as well.
