The celebrations begin on Holy Thursday with “the drum”. On the night when Christ was betrayed an historic night procession of great effect takes place on the streets of the city center to the rhythmic and gloomy sound of the drum.

The next day, Good Friday, the statue of Our Lady of Sorrows and the Dead Christ, kept throughout the year in the beautiful church of Santo Spirito, are carried on the shoulders of bearers in procession.
