Saint Rosalie, Palermo


Processions, festivals, plays, fireworks. The festivity to celebrate the Saint came to be called affectionately “the Festino” (literally meaning “little feast”) and Santa Rosalia got the name of “Santuzza” (“little Saint”) in order to express the great affection that the people of Palermo ever after felt for their patron Saint, an expression of daily trust, almost a sense of personal identification. The Feast have a special place in the hearts of many residents, this festival is the most famous and popular in Sicily. During the week of the festival the city becomes an open-air theater. The highlight is a 15m (50-ft.) high float known as the carro, which is paraded through the streets along with a statue of Santa Rosalia on a huge cart drawn by horses. Torchlight processions are conducted to the saint's shrine on Monte Pellegrino, where the saint is said to have appeared in a vision to a hunter. Bands, dancers, African drums, religious choruses, fantastic fireworks, theatrical performances, and feasts featuring everything from delectable tiny snails to fantastic gelato characterize the event.
