Easter is the main solemnity of Christianity. It celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, which took place, according to Christian confessions, on the third day of his death on the cross, as narrated in the Gospels.In Ramacca there is an ancient religious and folkloric tradition that begins on Palm Sunday, with the celebrations and rites of Holy Week that begin on Holy Wednesday with the procession of the Lord to the column and find their climax on Friday and Sunday. Good Friday is the day of the “Scisa a ‘cruci” that is the deposition of the dead Christ who is placed from the cross in a glass case and carried in procession around the town by the hooded men. The procession is accompanied by laments, dialect songs whose origin is lost in time, which recall the days of the Passion until the death of Jesus, but also the anguish and pain of Mary who is looking for her Son. On Easter Sunday the main square of Ramacca is the scene of the meeting between the risen Christ and the Holy Virgin, the triumph of life over death, in an atmosphere of joyful and moving participation, between flights of doves and the crackling of fireworks, with the statues of Jesus and Mary carried on the shoulders running towards each other three times, with the black mantle of the Madonna falling and the blue dress appears. Everything takes place between two wings of an ever-large public, made up of both citizens and many emigrants who returned to the village precisely to attend this event.
