Saint Hubert is the Patron Saint of hunters and many of Venaria's traditions and rituals are dedicated to him. The town itself, whose name refers to hunting, was established in connection to the hunts that were organized here in the 17th century.

The celebrations organized in Venaria for Saint Hubert, that bring together the town and the Reggia, culminate with a Mass that is officiated close to St. Hubert's Day according to a special ritual. The Mass is held in the Church of the same name (where St. Hubert's relics, donated by the Pope and once conserved in the High Altar, represented the focal point of the church).

In collaboration with the Town of Venaria Reale, Fondazione Via Maestra, and Accademia di Sant'Uberto.
