April 10, 2009: This is a glimpse of the famed annual Good Friday "Processione del Cristo Morto" (Procession of the Dead Christ) which is held each year in the port of Rome, Civitavecchia. The procession is hosted by the Archconfraternity of the Gonfalone and is led by the Bishop of Civitavecchia-Tarquinia. In traditional form the penitents wear hoods over their faces to maintain their anonymity. The marching band plays "Lacrime."

They're playing my favorite Chopin piece! A Roma!
Totally The Godfather...
Reminds me of the Holy week processions in Seville, Spain. Thanks for posting.
