Ancient sounds are heard in the peasant suburbs spread throughout the spacious, wavy valleys that extend from the Sparagio Mountain to the hills facing Erice, the sea, and the Egadi Islands.

On the fertile and glittery soil of this strip of Sicily, mankind has spontaneously created in time a rural and urban territorial system, thus allowing the development of a made to measure civilization.

An archipelago of socially, economically, and culturally homogeneous suburbs, in which tourists may quench their thirst of history, nature, landscapes..., silence; Buseto Palazzolo proudly defends its peasant culture and its traditions, immortalizing them for those who wish to discover the times that once were, and for those interested in discovering the substratum of their own identity.

On Palm Sunday, Buseto Palizzolo offers a grand show of faith and culture. Fifteen scenes of the martyrdom, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are represented by living characters, in an evocative itinerary throughout the entire town. Buseto Palazzolo's Procession of Mysteries initiates the performances held during Holy Week in Trapani, each year becoming an introduction of greater interest.

The desire to identify the town through this form of expression is what originates Buseto Palizzolo's Via Crucis Procession; this procession is a very strong identity statement, it lives through the lecture of the Holy Scriptures, and is capable of maintaining its uniqueness regardless of the many other performances, while respecting the traditions. The mute characters re-enact the last events of Jesus' life, within a mobile scenic structure that complies with the landscape's constant variations.

The global effect is even more remarkable considering that the procession takes place during the night. The shadows, the expressions on the characters' faces, and the music create suggestive environments, and great emotional participation. Born in 1982, the originality of Buseto's "Mysteries" has earned an important space among the Holy performances of Sicily's Easter season throughout the years.

Each year since 1981 the people of a small but pleasant town are the protagonists of an event that synthesizes in time and space faith and love for their own land. Palm Sunday is the day of the event and the Way of the Cross, with its living personages, is the event.

From the arrival in Jerusalem to the Resurrection sixteen living scenes for seven interminable hours they travel across an attractive landscape, absorbed in the tranquillity and meek atmosphere of a place where few remain.

This engrossing documentary reveals the long vigil preceding the event, the preparations and the processions at sunset continuing throughout the shadows of the night, gathering the many facets of a memorable day and the mood of the peaceful and generous community of Buseto Palizzolo, that identifies with the life of Christ, the symbol of the hopes and ideals of a populace.

In the westernmost part side of Sicily, at the centre of an area featuring important tourist destinations, an undulating valley extends from Mount Sparagio (the highest point of Trapani) to the hills that overlook Erice, the sea and the Egadi islands.

Here, we are in Buseto Palizzolo, a welcoming place where everything tells a piece of the history of this land. Its ultra centenarian farming production, its perfumes and colours of fruits with unforgettable flavours, its craft made by small and medium industries, all of these things represents the crowning point of the economy of Sicily where it is still possible to live on a human scale.

In Buseto Palizzolo, during the course of the year, in order to promote and sustain its industry and to protect its cultural and religious values that forms an integral part of its history, special events come one after the other giving an additional value to the development of this community.
