On 9th, 10th and 11th August people celebrate "San Lorenzo's nights festival" (in Italian: "sagra") in the village historical centre.

The village offers a precious setting for putting on stage scenes from Middle Ages's way of life: the blacksmiths' shop, the archers' school, the witches' hunting, the chess club, the extortion of taxes by the evil Lord's administrators, the procession of hooded monks, and much more. The actors are not professionals but the citizens of Pretoro village who volunteer.

During the three evenings visitors can experience atmospheres and situations inspired from the village traditions: the antiques', handicraft and typical products' market stalls are scattered through the village alleys while, in the main squares, it is possible to taste the traditional dishes of the place.
