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
