'Lo Po Bulli'
Villar d'Arene has preserved a very old tradition of 'Pain Boulli' (Boiled Bred) made of rye flour and water.

Currently, people share this moment of respect for tradition and conviviality during its manufacture, the third weekend of November (even TV journalist came to make a documentary-film about this tradition).Guided tours are organized by the Association of the Villar d'Arène's old Community Oven,to transmit a testimony to this life of the past. A film 'Alpine Village' made in 1958 is also presented durind the visit.(Marcel Maget, an anthropologist wrote a thesis about the 'Po Boulli').
