Livigno has a deep-rooted roman catholic-culture. Probably the
geographical isolation (1.800m) is one of the reasons for the strong
roman-catholic influence. As L.G.
Battista Silvestri in one of his books "Livigno....once
upon a time" wrote, that Livigno's churches were testimonies
of such a deep rooted faith, that people even didn't loose their
faith in a better hereafter - not even when they had to fight against
nature and its immense powers year after year.
It doesn't seem a coincidence then, that many parts of Livigno are
named after their parish, which once were centres of the different
parts of the village.
