The Procession

Procession of St. Anne

According to Catholic religion July 26th is the day of St. AnneSant’Anna, as it is called in Italian, is the patron saint of Palizzi, in the southern region of Calabria, Italy. Every year on this date in Palizzi Superiore (the oldest part of the municipality) there is the procession of the patron saint. Much of the population participates with deep devotion to the “processione di Sant’Anna”. It is of course an excellent opportunity to visit this semi-abandoned ancient village and photograph this popular tradition.

Hilltop town of Morano Calabro

Hilltop town of Morano Calabro at night, Calabria, Italy.

The hill town of Morano Calabro takes the slope of a perfectly conical hill. The houses are built one upon the other, it really seems that the hill is built only by houses. On top of the hill, as it should be in a village of medieval origins, there is a church and the ruins of a Castle. In the background you can see the mountains of the Pollino National Park.
