And. 624: Conclusion of the festivities!


It ended Sunday 7 July, with the deposition of the image of Mary. Bruna in the Church of Saint Francis of Assisi, the 624th edition of the Festa della Bruna… and it is time budget.

Tradition respected, first. Ripping Carro happened there, where materani wanted, Piazza Vittorio Veneto! And’ really hard to quantify the festive crowd that accompanied the 2 July: from the first light of dawn followed the procession of pastors in several thousand. In the evening, during the translation of the Holy Image of Mary, in all probability, are overcome 40.000 Attendance. A resounding success. Even during the fireworks, in the alleys of the Sassi, thousands were watching with the nose, amazed by the extraordinary glitter created by fireworks that lit the Murgia Timone. Even celebrations Octave saw an extraordinary participation, hardly vollessero, the materani, abandon the celebrations for the patron saint.

The 624th edition will surely be remembered for the excellent results achieved by the organizers. There are many initiatives in place to improve participation in the festival and thanks go first to the Executive Committee and to the Archbishop because, albeit from a gravely deficient situation, managed, together, to bring in positive balance. Is meant to recall later, the valuable contribution of the sponsors and the sale (finished even days before extraction) of all 10.000 lottery tickets. The great work of employees, dell'auriga, Volunteers rescue, of all police forces, and of all those who have put their effort for the success of the events, did the rest. Thanks.

Some, Also this year there were some critical, emerged from the ranks of the Knights of Mary. Bruna and during the procession of pastors because of certain prefectural. Both, however,, already latent for several years and readily scaled thanks to direct confrontation with the leaders of the Committee, Police Headquarters, the City and the Province of Matera! Critical anyway, very little capable of affecting the beautiful image of the Feast.

Great appreciation was also expressed on the article made from paper mache “Faces to Carro”, the group of boys assisted by the artist Andrea Samson materano: significant was his embrace, after 3 (This year five) rpm, with the pastor of the Cathedral Don Vincenzo Di Lecce.

Don Vincenzo, which goes a sincere thank you for your great work, is also worthy of the commitment carried forward to the rebirth of the Brotherhood of the Pastors of Bruna, took place this year, after more than 50 years after its dissolution.

The portal is proud to show the results achieved in this edition: 12.103 unique visitors for a total of 44.087 views in 15 days dedicated to the celebrations, of which 13.121 the 2 July! Important numbers, that help to understand how grown, in recent years, the media attention towards this Feast, also at national level! The blessing by S.It is. Mons. Salvatore Ligorio to all the press has marked this milestone.

Personally, I extend thanks to my closest collaborators and the preparation of TRM Network for the friendliness and professionalism. Moreover, there are still many ideas to be realized, as the expansion of the services offered by this portal, which will soon be enriched by German translation edited by young Sybille Becker.

The hope, therefore, is to find ourselves all still here, next year, to celebrate Matera and his devotion to Mary. Again. Hooray Maria, hooray Matera!

Conclusion of Celebrations

bil2012Once the festivities for the Madonna della Bruna – The guide to

The 2 July is just past, and also the Octave was celebrated: Today the sacred image of Mary. Bruna has been placed in the Church of St. Joseph. Now, it is time to take stock.

The day was Monday, as always, very intense: eventful, partecipatissima in the liturgies and the rowdy, traditional, hot folklore that always amazes and anyone who approaches to this party.

It would be asking too much …little bit, the preparation of, a simple adjective “positive” the “negative” to describe the entire Feast. Argue, but not before thanking.

Let's start by thanking all, interchangeably: thanks to those who participated, finding himself immersed in the spirit of communion that the City created around at a party that has no equal.

And’ We should thank the religious authorities that indicate the way to go and bless this Feast, the civil and military authorities who seek to sacrifice resources and protect the work of all, and make every effort so that the tradition is respected. And’ We should thank those deep their commitment and always with dedication, and works for the party: The Committee, the Knights of Maria della Bruna, the charioteer and all employees, Pastors of Bruna, Italian Red Cross, Civil Protection (This year was also the Civil Protection riding), departments scout Matera, firefighters, the local police and all the men and women who have followed more closely the festivities.

Personally, I applaud the work of the leaders of the State Police. The Quaestor Pasquale Errico, responsible for public order, has hit its target on the first try: is the first year coordinating the agitated 2 July materano, but everything went the right way.

The presence of police officers, in some phases of the feast, was almost imperceptible: you take the example of the Procession of the Shepherds, where there are no accidents and the use of agents has been reduced to a minimum.

In the evening instead, be able to close ranks Agents, free them from the arrogance of “usual suspects”, and having previously taken care of some dangerous details, allowed the most spectacular moment of the festival, ripping wagon, is consumed under the gaze of the whole square, already for several hours packed with people, calling into question the words: “The Chariot will break where you'll want to break”.

Also note the valuable work of the Local Police and Civil Protection, commitment maintained by managers and municipal leaders, that effective and continuous work of operators ecological.

However, there have been unexpected, smoothly, blunders and criticism, some also rather vehement, erupted even before the festivities.

It will not be this drawing, and here on this site so important for the party, to list the organizational oversights and errors that have been committed, because one already exists and the Board “court” media is at work already ab illo tempore, and here we speak of the Feast, not the chatter.

The swirl of accusations, protests and resentments that go on sometimes with legal consequences and almost always end with words stolen from epitaphs, which, su, we prefer to give advice. The compliance schedules, for example, can make feasible a live television made with the most powerful and in collaboration with major broadcasters.

Work harder, combining the expertise to humility and temperance, speak with sincerity and diplomacy, work with patience and humility, and without too much grandstanding.. surely lead to a better organization, more responsible, credible, reliable and less rough: need a synergistic balance of organizational figures: and then, with the work of all, you will have to pull “yl car” one direction. And we hope that, at the end of the climb, there is the Cathedral!

The portal, this year, has managed to renew itself and to ensure a complete picture, Free and “clean” the party, thanks to the growing number of collaborations established with the new offer represented by social networks. The numbers recorded this year are still growing compared to past editions, despite the confusion generated by the distribution of information material inattentive and continuous dimming by the Executive Committee.

You want to extend sincere thanks to the staff, supporters, users and visitors of this node in the network for the attention, friendship, confidence, the closeness and the gratitude shown. The editorial staff wishes you all a happy summer, and invites you to find yourself in photos and mini documentaries made on holidays.

At Last, with the hope of bringing even in your homes, with the help of the web, the blessing of the Cart and Maria della Bruna, we bid farewell with the famous motto that S.It is. Mons. Salvatore Ligorio wanted to play last night: “A mogghj a mogghj c onn a l'Aven”.

At all, a sincere wish and a goodbye to the edition number 624: hooray Maria, hooray Matera!

Michele Chancellor

Hooray Maria!
