Manchester Italian Association - The Procession

Throughout the year MIA organises many events. The most high profile is the Procession, known popularly as the Italian Walks or Italian Procession, which took place on Sunday 8th July 2018. The full title for the event is actually the Madonna del Rosario Procession, as it is in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary. 

The Procession involves the carrying of religious emblems – The Madonna, The Calvary, St.Anthony and banners – from Ancoats across Manchester city centre, passing the Town Hall. The procession is accompanied by the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Manchester councillors, members from the Italian consul, women in the colourful regional dress of Italy, and children in First Communion dress.
