An ancient rite from the Holy Week in Sulmona; a sacred event, played by Lauretans, in the historic Piazza Garibaldi, one of the largest in central Italy.
A narrative re-enactment of the encounter between the Virgin Maria and the risen Christ with thousands of people participate every year.
The Confraternity of the “Madonna di Loreto” parades to Piazza Garibaldi on Easter Sunday and, after knocking on the door, the Madonna come out from San Filippo church. Once she has seen her son in the bottom of the square she starts to run to reach him.
