The first Sunday after August 15
Every year in Petralia Sottana in August it evokes the characteristic Bridal Procession and the traditional dance of Cordella, both are a form of entertainment in evocative natural scenary of Petralia. The first wants to evoke the ancient ritual of the wedding of the peasant-feudal of the nineteenth century and the second is a dance that seems to sink its roots in the ancient cults of the goddess Ceres. Around a pole topped by a ear 12 pairs of dancers intertwined colored ribbons. The four figures of the dance, celebrate together with field labor, even the bread that comes: sowing, germination, harvest and bread. The twelve pairs representing the twelve months of the year or the constellations revolving around the sun, author of fertility and rural life. The dance is a tribute wishes to the newlyweds that their union is fertile offspring, well-being and joy.
