Festival of Santa Maria Madellena
5

Every town in Italy seems to have a patron saint who is celebrated annually. Was in Atrani in July during the two day celebration of their patron saint, Santa Maria Madellena as the procession ended with the statue of the saint being carried into the the single piazza of the town, Piazza Umberto. You may need to go full screen to see the detail in the photo captured with an XV.

Re: Festival of Santa Maria Madellena

One more thing. As the statue of Santa Maria Madellena was entering the piazza, the trumpet players started playing Aida. It was very moving. In fact, you can see the trumpet players in the far left playing Aida.
