The Wooden Statues
The Wooden Statues are works of artistic and cultural value made in the eighteenth century by artful carvers belonging to Neapolitan school. They represent Our Lady of Sorrow, Ecce Homo and Risen Christ.
The group of Statues was exhibited, for the last time, in the Chapel of San Gennaro, during the Holy Week of 1775, after which he was relegated to the warehouses in place of the silver ones. Currently the Statues have been restored and displayed again to the public after 240 years.
From the historical documents emerges a curiosity: it is said that one hundred days of indulgence were granted to the devotees for each Ave Maria, recited at the presence of the Sacred statues.
