  • A rally more than a religious folk. This enormous Vara is pulled by hundreds of devotees barefoot running screaming preceded by tank trucks that bathe the asphalt. Particular the turn to go towards the Cathedral when it is already evening.

  • Every year an event that repeats for my city, but that stirs new emotions for those who, like me, see year after year go on viale Garibaldi and turn towards piazza duomo. Prayers, traditions and folklore awaken Messina for a day. Congratulations to skilled shooters. Must live

  • Religion and scenography, sacred and tradition come together in what is a unique procession, immense in size and features. One of the most fascinating events of messina that every year on schedule in mid-August. To visit and appreciate the traditional white clothes and shooters all rites. Fireworks finale to top it off.
