Catholicism is a way of life in Sicily. The re-enactment of Christ’s death at Easter is one of the main events in the religious calendar. Every little village in Sicily has one or several brotherhoods whose members walk the streets displaying religious artefacts and symbols. Each village has their own schedule and processions differ significantly in size and duration. Trapani holds the record where processions continue for a full 24 hours.
Most the the pictures shown in this gallery were taken in Enna. All brotherhoods start around 3 in the afternoon and finish their processions around midnight.
