The article attempts to present everyday religiousness and the effects of religion on culture, and illustrates them with a case study. Following Geertz (1994), the author emphasizes the qualitative aspect of religion. Based on some of the results of her field work carried out in Padova, the author shows that it is the individual and everyday religiousness that can lead us to gain a better understanding of the cultural dimensions of human behaviour. She goes on to illustrate the extent religion has rooted in traditional rural life, as well as providing examples and a brief analysis of everyday religious customs and the effect religion exerts on culture.
