San Giuseppe fest in Randazzo

San Giuseppe has been the patron saint of Randazzo since ancient times. Devotion to this saint increased after the eruption of 1981, the year in which Etna strongly threatened the town of Randazzo. The citizens turned to their protector who answered their prayers. At the end of the evening a torchlight procession is made that starts from the town to reach the statue of the Saint placed outside the town and turned to Etna.
