Dramatic show where 50 actors play scenes taken from the Passion of Christ, along the Chapels of the Sacred Mount of Our Lady of Ossuccio.
The Holy Representation can be considered a dynamic forerunner of Sacred Mounts. Starting from Middle Age popular devotional events, in which they staged many tableaux vivants concerning evangelic texts, first of all about Jesus’ Passion, had often taken place.
The Sacred Mount of Our Lady of Ossuccio, inserted in 2003 in the World Heritage List by UNESCO, includes the Sanctuary and fourteen chapels illustrating the Mysteries of the Rosary. The chapels were built in the 17th century through the initiative of Fra Lorenzo Selenato and the contribution of some important local families who financed the construction of the chapels.
