Photographer's Note

The Holy Week processions, which are documented as far back as the second half of the 17th century, make their way through the old town of Mendrisio on the evenings of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. The street lights are turned off specially so that the lanes can be bathed in the soft light given off by vast, illuminated pictures called "transparenti" that hang above the entire route and depict scenes from the Gospels and the Old Testament.
