The Vasa Vasa Madonna - Easter in Modica
In Modica, on Easter Sunday the traditional rite of the Madonna Vasa-Vasa takes place, that is the Madonna "Kiss kisses". During the morning the procession of the statue of the Madonna and Christ takes place, carried on the shoulders by the faithful, who look for each other along the course. At noon, in front of the church of Santa Maria di Betlem, we witness the traditional midday kiss between the Madonna and the Risen Christ: the Madonna, at the sight of the Risen Christ, spreads and clasps her arms as a sign of joy and incredulity, it frees itself from the black mantle that wraps it, while white doves soar in flight.
