[4]The sombre sounds of the brogne

During the celebrations of the Madonna dei Conadomini the procession is accompanied by the sombre sound of brogne, large seashells used as musical instruments.
The strong contrast between the explosion of colour in the decorated floats and infiorata of the Staircase and the sombre sound of these natural instruments enhances the solemnity of the moment on the route to the Mother Church.
