Santa Maria Di Anzano 2011 Procession Through the North End


Santa Maria Di Anzano was honored today with its annual procession on the first weekend in June through the streets of the North End. Sponsored by the Societa Santa Maria Di Anzano Inc., the procession starts the summer tradition of religious festivals and feasts.

The video above captures scenes from today’s procession which started and ended at Hanover and Prince Streets with many stops along the way.

The image of the Madonna was discovered 400 years ago in a small Italian village now known as Anzano. The Madonna Di Anzano Society was formed in 1905 in America. For more information on Societa Santa Maria Di Anzano, see their website,
