Feast of the "Madonna Assunta" - Numana
The day before Ferragosto, a traditional festival of Numana
The 14th day of August is by now associated with Numana, with its celebration of the Assumption of Mary that beckon each year thousands of people, both tourists and not.
In this occasion some fishermen, helped by scuba divers, bring to surface a Statue of Mary, giving her homage and celebrating her on earth during a Holy Mass.
The warm atmosphere is illuminated by candles, both carried by visitors on earth and floating on the sea. At the end of this wonderful evening, a turn on the boats with the fishermen and colourful fireworks in the sky.
