  • A loud and resounding stands: Viva Maria. And hundreds of barefoot people pulling strong la Vara. The Sun is scorching the tarmac just wet. You wonder how it is possible?. You didn't answer. The look is appalled. Viva Maria. It will start again. .

  • On 15 August in Messina the procession of Vara. It's a giant "machina" driven with massive ropes by thousands of faithful. Shouting "Viva Maria" the car moves and makes a long walk around the town. Very impressive party, rich in folklore and messinesità
