You can kill, You can steal, you can betray, but on holy Friday in Sicily, All you need is a white tunic to make you pure. Palagonia, is a small sicilian country, the holy week is particularly felt by its population; Four confraternities passed down from father to son an ancient tradition that makes men all equal under the eyes of a dead Christ. Into the crowd you can see saints and demons, you can see innocence and guilt, the sacred and the profane. The strong sun of the noon shines the white tunics and create a strong contrast with the faces burned by the sun of the fields. In the silence you can see thousands souls speak with their eyes and their expressions... And there, in the midday sun, you hear the lament of white and black souls that slowly advancing, between shadows and lights of an old sicilian country. Palagonia - 04/14/2017
