Good Friday between the sacred and the profane,

Holy Week (Good Friday ) is the period in which Christianity, and in particular the Catholic Church celebrates the faith of events related to the last days of Jesus, including in particular his Passion, Death and Resurrection.

In Trapani ( Sicily)It 's the longest Italian religious festival and among the oldest.

The theatrical representation of the Mysteries is set in Medieval times as that at the time of the Roman occupation of Palestine.

And sometimes becomes a perfect mixture on the borders between the sacred and the profane,

   

Il venerdi Santo a Trapani, è un evento mistico che ripercorre la passione di Gesù. Una delle rappresentazioni più antice in Italia dove a volte sacro e profano si mescolano in una commestione speciale più antiche
