La Madonna che scappa

In the Abruzzo region of Italy each Center has its holy week re-enactment. The best known and also one of the most beautiful place in Sulmona the morning of Easter Sunday. Here for centuries held a unique commemoration focused on the figure of the Madonna.

It is the representation of one of the most emotional moments of the Christian Easter, the announcement of the resurrection to the incredulous Mary by St. John and St. Peter. Poignant spectacle that exalts himself in the final act of "Madonna che scappa", or rather that runs, toward the risen son then drop her mourning veil while white doves, bearers of good omen, release in flight.
