From Clubs: Italy in America continues to meet monthly via Zoom – May/June 2021

In March, member Betty Donellan gave a presentation on Easter traditions – La Settimana Santa – in Italy. She had travelled some time ago to Italy, taking lots of photos along the way, and she decided to share those with us. Beginning in Cortina d’Ampezzo in northern Italy and ending in Malta, she guided us through photos of Holy Week activities dating back to the 16th century, including processions of men carrying wooden crosses, large statues and iconic images, and accompanied by others dressed as Roman legionaries.
