Maria SS. Addolorata

Maria SS. Addolorata

At the end of the Festa for Maria SS. Addolorata, the procession returns to the small
church in Ischia Ponte, built with help from islanders who had emigrated over the years
and gathered in San Pedro, California.

Their generosity inspired the Emigrants' Festival - Pe' terre assaje luntane - and the
stories of their families are amongst the many that are told and retold each year.

After this, all that remained was the firework display!
