At the end of the Easter procession all the passion scenes are brought back to the Chiesa Anime Sante del Purgatorio, where it all started the day before. The last statue group to be brought in is that of "The Sorrows" (Maria) as seen here in front of the church. A large amount of spectators is around to witness the re-entry of the sculptures in the church after they and their portatori have been blessed and the closing of the doors of the church after the last statue has been carried in. Trapani, Sicily, Italy
