Good Friday, Trapani


For over four hundreds years every Holy Friday the tradition of the Procession of the collection of Sacred Saints of Via Crucis, known as “I Misteri” is repeated. The Procession involves a two kilometre journey in which thousands of local citizens and tourists coming from all over the world participate. The “Misteri” are a collection of twenty sculptures made of canvas, wood and glue that represent the phases of the Passion and the Death of Jesus. The statues, which stand on a wooden base, are decorated with silver jewellery and floral decorations and they are carried on the shoulders of men who transport them on the journey in the characteristic “annacata” way, a movement which the carriers stamp out to the music of the bands. The statues were designed between the XVII century and the XVIII century by local artists and they are characterised by the deep expressiveness of their faces and for the precision of their engravings. They are conserved throughout the year in the Chiesa del Purgatorio from which they emerge at 2:00 p.m. every Holy Friday, and once the Procession is over on Holy Saturday the following morning, they are returned to the church. On the day of the Procession, Trapani is transformed into a mixture of sacredness and folklore, and the town has maintained these unchanged characteristics for centuries.
