To 20:00 Friday has beginning from the square in front of the Cathedral the so-called "Procession of Mysteries", 5 groups wooden statuari whose original papier mâché eighteenth century are preserved in the Museum Diocesan Ecclesiastical. Every 25 years, on the occasion of the jubilee year, is carried in procession the Crocifisso del Frasa, dating back to 1709. On Easter Sunday at 18:00, the Procession of the Kiss.
