2Easter Friday in Gubbio, Umbria

The ‘Procession of the Dead Christ’ in Gubbio is a symbolic representation of the Passion of Christ that has been reenacted every year for centuries.

The procession is opened by members of the “Venerable Brotherhood of Santa Croce della Foce”, playing the ‘battistrangola,’ an instrument that produces a scrap metal sound, symbolizing the Golgotha and the symbols of the Passion.
