Città della Pieve
01-02 April 2018 

The living pictures are going on stage in the fascinating scenery of Orca Palace's dungeons on the Easter's Sunday and Monday. 

Themes of Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ will find expression in living pictures performed by about 40 figures, with scenes focusing on "The Last Supper", "The Getsemani's Garden", "Ecce Homo", "The Flagellation", "The Piety on the Dead Christ", "The Resurrection".

Scenes, that are particularly engaging thanks to the detailed reconstruction in accordance with the Sacred History, are inspired by the examples of the Italian Pictorial Tradition, particularly of the sixteenth/seventeenth-century.

The appointment will be therefore on the 1st and 2nd April: don't miss out on this real tribute to the pictorial richness of the town, that boasts the birthplace of Pietro Perugino and Antonio Circignani called the Pomarancio.
