Votive shrines (“fiureddi”)

Le numerose edicole sacre, in dialetto fiuredde in riferimento alla figura sacra che vi è contenuta, sono espressione di una spontanea religiosità popolare che si manifesta con l’usanza di accendere ceri e di ornare l’edicola con palme, fiori, drappi nella festività del Santo a cui è dedicata e in altre ricorrenze religiose.

We are not talking about jewels or universal works of art but small signs of love: you’ll encounter many of them, sooner or later, in your journey. They are what remains of stages of thousand-year old religious paths, or tributes of a loving, family and intimate faith, faithful gestures of a forgotten devotion, of a moderate and shown belief, which calls for smile, encounter, tolerance and peace.
