Procession of the Holy Cross The Volto Santo in Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

The 13th of September brings the night of Lucca's most holy festa, the Procession of the Holy Cross. The Volto Santo , a particularly revered face of Christ, was once carried through the streets on this night, before it was returned to its home in the Cattedrale San Martino.
