Arciconfraternita della Pietà (p.zza Cesare Battisti) and the roads in the city centre. Easter Sunday afternoon. The devotional story of the Arciconfraternita della Pietà has its roots in the Easter Sunday celebrations. In 1726 the Solemn Procession of Easter Sunday was established, it was interrupted from 1970 to 2000, and is still held today with figures representing characters from the Old and New Testament. The procession route follows the streets in the town centre and ends at the Arciconfraternita della Pietà in piazza Cesare Battisti.
