In the German-speaking Bersntol (Val dei Mòcheni) in the Italian Alps, the Three Wise Men have left in their stead a robust choir of young men, parading the Star from farm to farm.

This film is part of Carnival King of Europe DVD 2 - CHRISTMAS AND THEREABOUTS IN THE ALPS. At the very heart of the winter rituals, Christmas time in the Alps harbours a host of traditional masquerades, from the Day of St. Nicholas to the Epiphany.
