Caption
Every Holy Saturday throughout the districts of Nocera Terinese (Catanzaro) a century-long rite still keeps happening the rite of the Vattienti, some of the faithful in black tunic who flagellate ex voto themselves with the cardo, cork disc with 13 glass splinters, the lanze, symbolizing Christ and the apostles. The flagellants, who leave on churches and houses the rosata, an imprint of blood of good omen, are followed by the acciomu, a child dressed in red whose uncorrupted purity promises forgiveness from sin. The acrid smell of blood, mixed with that of the wine used to disinfect wounds, envelops the alleys and squares of a country crowded with believers, onlookers and anthropologists from all over Europe, attentive witnesses of a heartfelt custom, sacred and profane, still controversial and opposed.
