HOLY WEEK IN TRAPANI
Social meetings, feelings and moods during the processions of Holy Week in Trapani
In the week before Easter, Trapani changes its face and rediscovers itself still firmly attached to its roots. Trapani returns to the rites of an ancient spirituality, after 400 years still deeply alive. These are days in which faith, tradition, folklore, sacred and profane are mixed. Moments of aggregation where the city finds itself all. Hours when the streets fill with people; a large crowd that meets to follow and accompany the "Procession of the Addolorata", the "Procession of the Madonna of the people" and finally the long "Procession of the Mysteries". In these moments of great religious participation, the entire economic, cultural, social and political life of the city is also reflected.
