Homage To Mother and Son

Happy Easter!

Today marks the start of the “Archi di Pasqua,” or the Arches of Easter in San Biagio Platini in Agrigento Province. From now until May 6, the mountain town’s Corso Umberto (i.e., Main Street) will be decorated with elaborate archways, domes, and bell towers constructed using river reeds, willow, asparagus, bay leaf, rosemary, cereals, dates, and colorful breads that are created with natural elements. The effort is produced to pay homage to the Madonna and Christ, who are the principal characters in a beloved procession that takes place today in the town center.

My cousin, Filippo Buttitta, attended the 2016 feast and took this photo.
