  • Each carriage return Sarsina always gives me serenity, that characteristic square that picks up the whole atmosphere emanating from the Romanesque cathedral. Just go into it by looking around you feel the lightness of the soul and at the same time the mighty force of that place. In places like this what you feel is subjective to realize you have to live it

  • More than for architectural or artistic characteristics and qualities is famous for exorcism rituals that take place with the imposition of an iron collar, according to rites that are combined with civilization and human dignity and treatment of psychiatric illnesses, misunderstood to demonic possession. In 2016.

  • Sarsina Cathedral is one of those religious places that do not leave indifferent the visitor and even an agnostic like me warns that Romanesque walls of this temple of the spirit are all things that human reason cannot understand and can't explain how the eternal struggle between good and evil. Then the rite of the imposition of the collar is something unique that are still being made and linked exorcisms which make this church famous far beyond the borders of Romagna. Furthermore the Devil (or our dark side as I prefer to call it) is like the shadow and where there is more light there is also more shade ... the two sides of the same coin. As a child I was often brought to placing the collar of St Vicinius because according to my I was "possessed" and was an Angel, but the comparison Gianburrasca rite on me did not operate any improvement, indeed, remember that many times as I was leaving the Church I was running like crazy through the square of Sarsina after throwing up the banquet of Triestina (a little old lady who was selling the famous "cordellini" colored of San Vicinio outside the Church). I still recommend to everyone, believers and non-believers to go at least once in their lifetime in Sarsina and have put the collar and maybe attend mass by don Fiorenzo that knows how to touch the strings and the sa vibrate so that even someone like me out of there is forced to think and to come to terms with the dark sides harbored inside each of us. There is an ancient Spanish adage which reads more or less like this: Detraz de la cruz esta el diablo .... to me did very think and I'm sure the readers of this review will not remain indifferent.
