Moonset at daybreak

The Moon and the Rocciamelone (Piedmont, Italy, 3538 m.)

Nowadays the summit of Rocciamelone is popular with hikers and pilgrims particularly adventurous, especially on the feast of Our Lady of the Snow, which takes place every year on August 5th. The summit is almost "crowded": there are Europe's highest sanctuary, dedicated to Our Lady of Rocciamelone, and a bronze statue of the Blessed Virgin, built in 1899.
