Easter 2017 - Trapani - The Procession of Mysteries

The Procession of the Mysteries of Trapani takes place from 14pm on Good Friday and lasts for almost twenty-four hours till Saturday. And 'the longest Italian religious festival and one of the oldest. The sacred groups of the Mysteries go through the most of the streets of the Sicilian city, in a show of lights, sounds, colors and emotions. It is a tradition with obvious Spanish origin that is for nearly 400 years. The Mysteries are twenty artistic representations of the Passion and Death of Christ, exactly eighteen groups, plus the two statues of the Dead Christ and Our Lady of Sorrows. On a shaped wooden base called Vara, stand the sculptures made by Trapani artisans on seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and represent Gospel scenes.
