About the Shot
PASSION OF CHRIST Born in the sixteenth century or perhaps earlier, as rites of penance and expiation that came to go up to the corporal mortification of participants with self-flagellation, these processions can be considered real stories, even "metanarratives" through the Holy Representation the Passion of Christ is manifest religious feelings intimately and equally as human suffering and purification. The procession, known as "White", organized by the Venerable Confraternity of St. Monica based in the Temple of the SS. Annunziata, runs through the downtown streets at night, between 3 and 6, returning at dawn on Friday and is in the folk tradition, the Virgin ii wandering in search of the Son, betrayed, arrested and sentenced to death on the cross.
