Holy Week

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the traditional rites of Holy Week, an event that marks the highest and most engaging moment in terms of participation for the entire village community.

Indeed, the protagonists of Holy Week are the village's age-old rituals and traditions: on the afternoon of Maundy Thursday, the somber sound of horns, handcrafted and carved from chestnut bark according to an art handed down from father to son, begins to resound in the village.

In the evening, the traditional Lord's Supper is held, and the confraternities sing the Miserere, Stabat Mater and Penitential Lauds before the altar of the Reposition.

During Good Friday, the confraternities, dressed in traditional dress, march in procession through the streets of the village, performing the ancient penitential songs. The choirs of Ceriana also perform their religious repertoire during the Vigil and Solemn Easter Mass.

The whole village cheers up the feast by joining in the singing, and outside of the solemn moments, gastronomic delicacies such as frisciöi, ancient Passion Week nourishment, are prepared in the square.
