Maddalena ai piedi della croce
In order to ensure the transfer of skills guaranteeing the preservation of the "Trasparenti", since the 1980s the City of Mendrisio has taken over their safekeeping, becoming their de facto owner. Ownership that once belonged to the inhabitants of the houses along the route of the Historical Parades. Families who commissioned local artists to execute them, even bearing the cost of the work.
To perpetuate this tradition, on the occasion of the forthcoming festivities, the Fondazione Processioni, in close collaboration with the Museum and Dicastero Museo e Cultura della Città di Mendrisio, proposes to "make you a gift" by contributing to the restoration of the Maddalena ai piedi della croce, belonging to the "balconies" typology and historically exhibited in Via Motta 24a in Mendrisio.
