The 500 figures in custom that compose the historical parade of the manifestation give more life to one of the moments represented in the evening.
Exiles figures, powerful soldiers and centurions, roman women, the picture of the robbers, the majestic horses makes the frame to a Christ who waves and suffers in the ninety minutes of distance of the Way Crucis. The arrival in proximity of the Calvary is the prelude to the fusion of the two events before separated (parade and scenes), that the coordination of a tested direction every year succeeds to integrate with ability and suggestion.
The 100 figures that in the evening and in the lights of the marvellous grassinese hill move like shadows, and actors on the natural stage between small streets, walls, ginestre and olive trees, represent a landscape and one scenic representation appreciated more times long applauded from men and women protagonists of the Italian show; the positive appraisals expressed from the big master Franco Zeffirelli, Giorgio Albertazzi, Carla Fracci and from the director Beppe Menegatti are remembered on purpose.
Only some theatre sagacities on a natural scene, create that evocative harmony of colors, sounds and lights that a lot hit the spectator who, for first time participates to the representation, but that they never ends to astonish them.
