Processions of the Holy Week of Mendrisio

Tradition, sounds, lights and lots of emotions for an edition of the Processions that will remain in Mendrisio's history.


An initiative that narrates the Processions without showing them, revealing anecdotes and curiosities, showing objects, making the sounds heard, but above all talking about the many volunteers who every year dedicate themselves to their organisation.

The tradition remains alive in the streets of the Borgo: from 1 to 11 April 2021 (with the exception of Holy Saturday) the streets of Mendrisio's historic centre come alive after sunset.

A tradition 400 years old.


An initiative to make Holy Week special also in 2021, telling about the silent and precious work that behind the scenes is carried out with passion and enthusiasm by many men and women 365 days a year, waiting for us to meet in 2022.

In December 2019 the Mendrisio Holy Week Processions became part of the UNESCO Representative List of Cultural Heritage.
