Good Friday

The Rugs

After almost three months of preparation at midnight, the artisans of the rugs initiate a titanic and marathonic journey up to ten hours of hard work in the "Via Crucis" street. At 9:00 a.m. you can appreciate a total of 24 rugs of stained and painted wood dust. The life of these rugs is short since the Via Crucis procession goes over the rugs at 10:30 p.m. and destroys them completely.
