We are still talking of holidays, Easter and Sicily. The island is very attentive to the traditions, especially religious ones, and Holy Week is a time deeply felt by the inhabitants. In Trapani, for example, the Good Friday procession is held the longest in Italy.
Easter this year falls on April 24, so the procession of the Mysteries is scheduled for April 22, 2011.

The peculiarity is that this procession, which has a long tradition of 400 years, leaves at 14 for Good Friday from the Church of the Souls in Purgatory and ends the next day. The Mysteries are twenty sculptures representing the stages of the passion and the life of Jesus and brought to the shoulders of the faithful throughout the historic city center. During the procession, the city comes alive with light and color, floral decorations. The event certainly derives from the Spanish tradition of Casazas that developed in all the lands conquered by the Iberians. The Mysteries carried in the procession were donated by the Brotherhood of St. Michael the Archangel, who gave the task to take care of its output in a procession to the local workforce. The statues were carved out of wood and supported by the skeletons of cork.
The clothes were created according to the typical technical Carcheto of Trapani, which allowed the creation of folds and drapes. The mysteries are not characters of classical, but episodes of the sacred texts or the apocryphal gospels. The base, also of wood, on which the statues are called vara and is done in such a way as to allow oscillation of the statue.

After this intense procession, which lasted about 24 hours, you can discover the beauties of the city of Trapani, and if you want, forever if you chose Sicily as a destination for your holiday of Easter, you can visit the nearby Erice to enjoy the traditional couscous Sicilian.
