A popular custom among aficionados of ancient traditions is the ritual of the launching of burning disks, the so-called "Scheibenschlagen", which takes place annually in Venosta Valley. With this archaic tradition, held each year on Septuagesima, the first Sunday before Lent, the inhabitants of the Venosta Valley pay homage to love and fertility and invite spring to reveal its blooming face.
