The traditions of the ‘Crasoladôrs’

Sounds are also part of tradition. In the past, the atmosphere of Easter Week was enhanced by the contrasting sounds of joyful church bells and the cacophonous crâsolas and batècui that filled the streets during the period between the Easter Thursday and Easter Saturday ceremonies. A similar tradition continues to thrive in the area of Enemonzo, where groups of children run through the streets, substituting the sound of the bells with a loud croaking noise produced by wooden ‘instruments’ to evoke the ice-cold depths of the ‘other’ world into which, according to an old Aquileian liturgy, Christ descended after death, breaking down a door bolted by the gods of the underworld so that he might release the righteous of every nation. It is wonderful to see these young people honouring the age-old tradition of their forefathers as they turn the handles of their instruments to repeat that ‘otherworldy’ sound, determined to maintain the significance it held for generations past.
