    Background: At Romagnano Sesia (in the province of Novara) good Friday is celebrated with a pageant depicting the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. This historic ceremony dates back to the year 1730 when it was held for the first time.

    This year's event was more than ever suggestive because of special care taken with the costumes depicting the time of ancient Rome and Judea.

    The event took place in the late afternoon at Novara. Consequently It was impossible to send it before now. I think it wise to send it off even if it is rather late because the event is quite suggestive.
