Korcula Holy week

ENG - DEU- FRA- ITA

During Holy Week three brotherhoods colourfully process through the town - All Saints, Saint Rocco, and Saint Michael. Their costumes and religious regalia are especially impressive.
The halls of the confraternities have exhibits evoking the rich history and high aesthetic criteria of Korčulans over the centuries.
Of particular note are the "torci" - wax candles which are carried in processions around the town, some of which weigh up to 73 kilos.
They are given names like "Zero", "Primo" etc depending on the weight.

An der Heilige Woche zieht auch die Prozession aller drei Brüderschaften (aller Heiligen, des Hl. Michaels und des Hl. Rochus) durch die Stadt. Besonders eindrucksvoll sind die Gewänder, das Inventarium und die riesigen Kerzen, die in der Prozession getragen werden.
Im Saal den Bruderschaften sind viele Exponate, die über die hohen ästhetischen Kriterien der Bewohner von Korčula in den vergangenen Jahrhunderten zeugen.
Besonders interessant sind "torci" – Wachskerzen, die in den Prozessionen rund um die Stadt getragen werden; sie wiegen bis zu 73 Kilogramm und je nah Gewicht werden sie auch benannt - "Zero", "Primo" usw.

C'est aussi l'occasion de voir la grande procession des trois confréries avec leur inventaire magnifique. Ces processions sont surtout impressionnantes les jours de la Semaine Sainte.
La cour de la confrerie est pleine de pièces qui témoignent d'une histoire riche et des critères esthétiques élevés des habitants de l'île dans les siècles passés.
Les cierges en cire „torci“, employés pendant les processions autour de la ville, sont particulièrement intéressants parce qu'ils pèsent jusqu'à 73kg et obtiennent leur nom en fonction du poids, par exemple "Zero", "Primo" et autres.

Un'occasione per vedere la grande processione di tre confraternità: San Rocco, San Michele e Ognissanti. Quelle processioni sono le più interessanti nei giorni della settimana santa. Le sale delle Confraternità è piena di reperti che testimoniano la ricca storia e gli alti criteri estetici dei cittadini di Korčula nei secoli passati. Particolarmente interessanti sono i torci - le candele di cera che si portano nelle processioni intorno alla città, che pesano fino ai 73 kg, ed a dipendenza del peso, sono nominate - Zero, Primo ecc..
