The procession of the Desolate, waited year after year, starts on Holy Saturday from the Church of Saints Francis and Blaise, at Canosa, in Apulia. In this ancient procession proceeds the statue of the Virgin Mary Desolate, flanked by floral decorations and followed by about two hundred fifty women, dressed in black, with their faces covered with thick black veils, that almost scream a song that is a particular version of Stabat Mater by Jacopone da Todi, the Hymn of Desolate by Antonio Lotti (century XVIII).
