Madonna dell’Arco

The "fujenti" about to enter in the sanctuary, with the banners of the virgin. Sant'Anastasia, 2008.

On Eastern Monday, in Sant’Anastasia, Napoli, one of the most interesting processions in Italy takes place, the fujenti gathering in the sanctuary of Madonna dell’Arco. Here’s a short video shot in 2008.

And an audio collage of our recordings inside the sanctuary, also in 2008. [audio:]
