San Giovan Giuseppe - other times

The patron saint of Ischia Ponte - San Giovan Giuseppe della Croce - is celebrated by a festa held in his honour spanning the end of August and early September, when the streets are filled with light.
Statues of the Virgin Mary and Saint Anthony are carried through the streets of Ponte in a huge procession which then embarks on a fleet of small boats to make its way to Porto.
There the procession assembles again and returns to the main church in Ponte - a round trip that involves hours of heavy work for the teams of men who carry the statues, flags and banners
