The name of this village southwest of Milan derives from “Fara Vegia” or “Fara Vetula.” The “fares” were the basic units of Longobard communities, organized both militarily and socially. The entire surrounding area dotted with farmsteads still largely inhabited, in which there is often a small church or oratory. In these minor churches reside the symbolic elements and fragments of religious community. The project investigates the faith and cultural heritage of the area around Fallavecchia, paying particular attention to the Church of St. George, located in the center of the village, where mass is celebrated only once a week.
