As all the feasts, there's a side profane too: in fact, during the week, there are celebrations Nettunese may, with concerts, festivals, welcoming thousands of people who come from all the neighboring municipalities. The Prioress anciently was a woman nettunese belonging to the clergy, aristocratic and maiden name. The costume of the woman nettunese è very opulent and elegant: before arriving to decadence at the end of the Nineteenth Century, the costume was with Open shirts on chest, fringed with a lace; the garment without sleeves, call guarnaccia, is long, close to the sides, and rich in folds on the skirt; above the garment, wore a corsaletto also open on the chest, and closed with a piece of cloth embroidered with two rows of trine d'Oro for the paired, and one for the unmarried. The costume now è can admire it during the procession of the Madonna delle Grazie, in the month of May, where girls nettunesi, according to tradition illibate, parade with the costume by the Prioress. The tradition wants that the chief prioress, prepare a large buffet for all citizens who want to join in the festivities at his dwelling place.
