Every 5 years in Sordevolo, in the Elvo Valley, we remind the event that marked the history of humanity: the Passion of Christ.
The territory goes on stage: more than 400 residents play the role of actors and give life to an exciting open-air show, in which the Passion of Christ is reconstructed, in a 4000 m2 amphitheater. Over 30000 spectators from all over the world flock to witness the performance live.
The Passion of Sordevolo is a rare form of folk choral theater, a tradition documented in Sordevolo since 1814, and handed down continuously for two centuries from generation to generation.
Uniqueness is also given by the double version of the show: the passion of adults and the passion of children. Everyone tries with commitment and dedication to honor a centuries-old tradition.
To discover the territory, remember the story of Christ and get excited together, you can visit the permanent Museum of the Passion, set up in the choir and sacristy of the Church of Santa Marta in Sordevolo.
The territory is able to offer outdoor activities in unspoiled nature, traditional local dishes, breath-taking views, but above all a unique show of its kind in Italy, of great historical, cultural and religious value.
