Gigi Farioli -- Mayor Busto Arsizio
The City of Busto Arsiziopresents itself as a modern industrial and commercial center, so deeply marked by the development of its productive apparatus, which is hard to imagine life, history and urban landscape in the period before the industrial revolution.
However a careful walk through the streets of the center and observation of some of the more ancient past, make us realize that this city has an identity and traditions before the advent of industry.
In the absence of documents that indicate the founding date of Busto Arsizio, it is only thanks to the discovery of some objects of the late Roman might indicate the origin, probably between the second and fourth centuries AD.
Enrico Dell'Acqua was one of the protagonists of the industrial development of the city exported textiles bustocchi and created modern factories in South America also
Between the late nineteenth century and the first decades of the twentieth century textile industries were joined by foundries and mechanical industries.
Busto Arsiziothus acquires a dual nature of cities and mechanical cotton, a situation which assured long-luck and prosperity.
Thanks to its infrastructure always being improved and excellent administration, already in 1864 Bust obtain recognition as a "city".
After World War II, development resumed and several initiatives were supported financially by Bustese including the airport of Malpensa.
We are accustomed to thinking in Busto Arsizio as a large urban area, lying in the arid and desolate expanses of moorland and overwhelmed by a forest of smokestacks of factories and warehouses and factories so as to be known as Manchester of Italy for the strong development of its industry cotton.
Nothing can be so hard on us people of the era of concrete and machines, as to imagine the time when envelope was a small locus surrounded by a vast country with only a few farms.
Yet as technology advances on the one hand and strong consumers as they still did not forget this people workshops and activities to its own traditions, customs, dialect and way of working.
The people Bustese, attentive to the history and traditions of its territory, has always been convinced that the memory of its origins and its history is essential for the harmonious development of the municipal social administration has always been committed concretely to the enhancement and recovery of cultural, historical and artistic people. E 'for this reason that the bustocchi showed great attachment to their language, opposing the love and pride for their dialect to the ironies of the neighbors who suffer more or less unjustly hardness. Language bustocco represent significant departures from the dialects of Lombardy and the same dialect nostrani of the most forthcoming in Busto Arsizio. Hard and lean, extremely quick, these features certainly attributable to the rush of work for those who work hard, doggedly no time to lose even speaking.
Particularly sensitive and interested in the Lombard dialect, especially bustocco, many writers have grafted a literary tradition totally dedicated to Bust, reviving in a large number of stories, proverbs, rhymes collected over years and years of careful research, not just spoken, but also the customs, the lifestyle of their fathers and grandfathers, their wit, their way of record daily events, their acute powers of observation, what today might be called "philosophy of life."
Traditions and old customs bustocche
The cycle of seasons has always punctuated by the rhythm of life of the agricultural world: conjure up spring in the middle of winter, to propitiate the favor of the sky to ward off drought and storms, the omens from certain events, thank the patron saints of the crop well, remember their dead experienced as inseparable part of their own destiny: this has always been part of the cultural heritage of simple people linked to survival in a land not always benign.
One of the features and determinants of bust is undoubtedly the associational richness in the city. Thanks to numerous associations, coordinated and stimulated by the City Council, you can relive the beautiful traditions bustocche and you can defend with great vigor the local culture.
Busto Arsizio tougher than other nearby towns, keeps faith with a tradition as old as nice as the feast of Gioeubia.
Precisely in the middle of winter and the last Thursday of January, it burns the "old" symbol of the dry season about to implore the arrival of the green season, which meant the possibility of survival.
It was a celebration of women, a reminder perhaps of the matriarchal society of the typical Ligurian people who are descended from ancient times the bustocchi.
On this day, mandatory "risotto with luganiga" the one and the other symbols of fertility.
Preparation of courses and parade of floats and masked
Official character of the City of Busto Arsizio "Ul Tarlisu. The word adopted is appropriate dialect for "truss" designation of a particular type of tissue "Cross" or pillowcase for mattresses and pillows, striped brown and white, and produced in many factories in the city.
That is the feast of St. Joseph of the family. Bustocchi I have a particular veneration for the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, have linked to his name, since its foundation, their large hospital. Every year we see a long procession of people going to visit the hospital of St. Joseph to bear witness to faith and charity to the founder of the Christian family.
Festa salad and the Madonna ciap Veroncora
Easter Monday from time immemorial the Bustocchi are the Madonna Veroncora for the Feast salad and ciap.
The significance of this tradition to be found in agricultural work, once as important as the textile worker, tied to the seasons and the rituals related to the sky asking for abundant crops.
Veroncora of this was the rite of spring is celebrated with the return of summer camps offering the first salad with hard boiled eggs always been a symbol of fertility. Traditional skills competition of the reckless riders on horses decorated festively with ribbons and flowers. Around the lawn of the race the chariots were drawn over which the families were making a hell of typhoid until late evening.
The City of Busto always celebrated on 24 June, his patron St. John. It is not quite clear whether, on the night of Saint John, Madonna cry of tenderness for the anniversary of the birth of the man who baptized his son or anxiety for the sins of the world, the fact is that his tears, who on this night solidify, had a miraculous power and those who possessed the relics kept in small boxes as portentous.
Once, the farmers brought all the cattle and horse to the church for the blessing, today the festival is celebrated in the month of September and you can taste the traditional bread of San Rocco. "
The church of the Madonna in Prato, is linked to the festival, which takes place on 8 December of each year, called the "Breast" (almond wafers), who once wore their boyfriends as gifts to brides, as a wish for prosperity .
