The ancient Procession of Desolata is one of the most important and moving rites of Holy Week in Canosa di Puglia. A procession consisting of various elements: the children dressed as little angels, each of whom carries in his hands one of the symbols of the Passion of Christ, the statue of the Desolate Virgin and the suggestive choir made up of over 300 women with their faces completely covered and dressed in black, who, singing the Stabat Mater by Jacopone da Todi, express all their torment and pain.
