The Mysteries of Good Friday

Yesterday in Trapani I witnessed the Mysteries, or I Misteri. Local confraternities representing different professions carry these centuries-old statue-scenes depicting the stations of the cross. Marching bands accompany the scenes playing dirges and the confraternities and bands sway in sync. It is beautiful and sad and full of emotions! A beautiful scene!
