The urn with Jesus Christ @ Good Friday in Porto Empedocle - a video. And Easter Sunday with the photos of Saint Paoloni, in Aragona

In South.... Please refer to the tags below!




The urn with Jesus Christ @ Good Friday in Port..., posted with vodpod  
Sunday in Aragona. Easter celebrations in Aragona, in South Sicily, started in 1702 with a notarial deed  by don Pietro Marzocchio who decided that risen Jesus Christ should meet his mother Mary on the streets of this town. And there are also two brotherhoods, one for Jesus and one for the Virgin Mary - the church of Rosary and the church of Carmelo. 

Only in 1732 two big saints or Saint Paoloni: were introduced Saint Peter and Saint Paul. They  were wooden statues of Spanish descent, high more than three metres or meters - maybe nine feets - and with  clothes and ribbons. They were placed over the shoulders of the men of only familiies, Alongi and Attardo – Scifo – Lorenzano, by a sling.

A shell museum in Sicily, a photo and malacology

Malacology? Almost 5.000 shells in South Italy... Everything because of an idea  of a woman, Vanna Rotolo Lombardo, and from some seas in the world and the sea of Porto Palo - please see the link to a map below. About 1.700 shells out of them are exposed in three rooms with the names of famous world malacologists.
