'A CUMPRUNTA

 

At midday on Easter Sunday the statues of the Christ and the Virgin, borne by young men belonging to the Congregations of Our Lord (Signore) and Rosary (Rosario), at the given signal of three bows, would be paraded through the village after leaving simultaneously from the centre of Pian Castello, from the main gate of the Chiesa Matrice and the centenarian elm respectively. The statues are paraded through the village amid the emotional and anxious crowd looking from their balconies and from the perimeters of the square, witnessing this poignant, symbolic scene of the embrace of Mother and Son in Galilee following the Resurrection on the night preceding Easter Sunday.

The cumprunta is one of the most spectacular and characteristic traditions of our village. I would be grateful to whoever would like to send news and picture that i will publish in these pages.
