The procession, done to a rural catholic church at the top of a little hill in August 2010, follows an itinerary through the fields near around and returns to the church welcomed by the bells. The priest, after the Mass, leaves the church pronouncing a prayer and urges the women to start the procession. He says: Avanti (go ahead!). As first go the women then the priest and the canopy with the Virgo Maria, behind the men and at least some people talking and less interested to the ceremony. This is a document of a long sequence of latin litanies and a kind of ceremony almost unchanged from the first centuries of Christianity. Equipment used Sony SX800D, external microphone Sony ICM CS10.
