Chiesa di San Giuseppe

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage.

Holy Week

The rites of Holy Week begin on Palm Sunday. Actors and simulacres evoke Jesus arrival in Jerusalem. The rites end on Easter Sunday.

You can not miss this itinerary. The rites of Holy Week begin on Palm Sunday. Actors and simulacres evoke Jesus arrival in Jerusalem. On Holy Wednesday evening the Trial is staged. It takes place in Piazza degli Eroi square and is preceded by a long procession with actors wearing old Roman costumes. At the end Jesus goes towards the Calvary with the Cross on his back. Along the way he falls twice. On Thursday evening the simulacres of St. John and Our Lady of Sorrows leave St. Joseph's church and go in procession carried on shoulder and looking for Jesus in the churches of the town. The simulacres reach the church of the Holy Sacrement where dead Jesus lies. St. John and Mary try to come in the church but the main door closes. The band plays a touching dead march “The grief of Mary”. Good Friday is the most toucing day of Holy Week. The simulacres of Our Lady of Sorrows and St.John go in procession together with dead Jesus and the simulacres representing the stations of the Cross, towards the Calvary. In the evening the Deposition from the Cross is performed and at the end a long procession accompany the dead Christ to the Mother Church's square while the simulacres of Our Lady of Sorrows and St. John come back to St. Joseph's church. On Easter Sunday the performance of the “Sampauluna” takes place along the main street. Eleven paper-mache giants embodying the Apostles attends the meeting between Mary and the risen Christ.
