San Rocco in Frigento, Avellino

From the official website of the Comune di Frigento:

The statue of the Saint is taken in the streets of the town with a procession. Some women who are devoted to the saint put on their heads the β€œmezzetti” which are large wooden containers that contain roughly 30 kg of wheat.

The β€œmezzetti” are decorated with weaved wheat, colored ribbons and plastic flowers.
