Good Friday in Gubbio – Processione del Christo Morto

Tomorrow Gubbio withesses a very ancient pageant by candlelight through the historic centre of the town.  Symbolising the passion of Christ, prominent townsfolk process through the town;s narrow streets carrying relics and chanting.

It is a haunting costumed ritual, the participants covered head to foot with only narrow eye slits in their cloaks, slowly processing and incanting.

Starting at 19.00 tomorrow evening if you are in Umbria you should make a point of coming to Gubbio and wintessing the event.  Here are some picture of last years procession.
