According to the popular tradition the wooden statue was placed inside a Benedictine monastery on the southern side of Mount Grappa, at the mouth of Santa Felicita valley and dedicated to the Paduan martyr Felicita.
Legend has it that on July the 15th 1636 an extraordinarily violent flood hit the area, the monastery and the church included, sweeping a lot of debris downstream.
Sebastiano Favero from Mussolente was watching the fury of the flood from the bank of the torrent Volon when saw the wooden statue in the water. As soon as he recovered and brought it home the statue was identified by the population in Mussolente as the statue of the Madonna belonging to the monastery of Santa Felicita, destroyed in the disaster.
Over the following 3 years the statue was kept by Favero family and then donated to the parish church. Afterwards, in 1636 it was carried in procession to the church on the hill and placed onto an altar, dedicated to Her.
Thus, according to the popular tradition, it took the name of Madonna dell’Acqua (Madonna of Water) either as memory of its extraordinary recovery in the torrent Volon and to highlight the special protection requested to the virgin so that there is no lack of water.
Since the placement of the statue on top of the hill the population in Mussolente has been applying to the Madonna to ask for consolation, help and protection in any circumstance, especially in case of real danger or threat.
Two vows have been made: in 1917 to avert the evacuation of Mussolente after the Caporetto defeat and in 1944 to avert the threat of fascist retaliations.
For decades the feast of Madonna dell’Acqua has been being celebrated the first Sunday of August.
