Holy Thursday

During the Mass in Coena Domini, Parish priest washes the feet of twelve confreres of the Confraternity of the upstream of the dead, elected by drawing lots as disciples. In the wake of the parish priest, or privately, the faithful visit the churches, where are prepared the altars of repositioning, said graves, whose origin is traced back to the pagan rite of the gardens of Venus. During the night takes place the rite of tamurri: a group of men traverses the country playing a drum from the skin of an ass have forgotten it and a flute, a remembrance of the Virgin who seeks Jesus, while the soldiers come to stop it.
