“Abbassa abbassa, che l’angelo tocca!”
gridava il priore.

This was the procession of Saint Sebastian Day the 20th of April, who is the patron saint of San Biagio. Now the patron saint has been changed from Saint Sebastian to Saint Biagio but back in the days it was Saint Sebastian, and during the procession they carried the statue of Maragliano. On top of the statue’s hand of the saint tied to a trunk they put an angel, and every time they passed through a particular alley they had to lower the statue in order to prevent it from hitting the roofs and vaults as it would have broken.
