The Traditions of Faith

PandatariafilmThe Traditions of Faith

Project details

The celebration of Ischia’s Patron Saint, San Giovan Giuseppe della Croce, involves telling the story of how the ancient Confraternities of fishermen and farmers were formed. Created to give help in times of trouble, the Confraternities still represent the heart and soul of the religious life on Ischia. The procession begins on the mainland and proceeds to the sea, on board boats decked with flowers which take the Saint from Ischia Ponte to Ischia Porto. Fishermen, farmers, emigrants and tourists all join in a strong spiritual empathy to ensure that the union between the Saint and the island is renewed, and by so doing reveal a new aspect of the island’s origins.
