  • 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

  • This religious procession is the pride of the citizens, an appointment expected each year offering endless emotions, consists of a "votive chariot" as they call it, is pulled through large ropes by thousands of faithful, citizen participation is massive, addictive.
