The Procession of the Mysteries in Trapani (Photos)
Franca Calderone, a professional photographer and dear friend of Sicily Guide, was in Trapani for the Procession of the Mysteries on Good Friday and took wonderful black & white pictures of the event. Franca said that the procession started on April 22 at 2:00PM and lasted about 24 hours, until about 2:30PM of the following day. She photographed the exit of the 21 votive varas at the exit and entrance at the church, which took four hours each time!
You can see for yourself how religious and pagan the procession appears from the photos. To learn more about Franca Calderone, visit her blog at http://francacalderone.wordpress.com/.
