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!

    I am promising myself, next year I will return to Trapani for the Good Friday Procession. I still hear the music of the bands…
