[5]The unveiling of the Madonna della Stella

statua della Madonna
On the eve of the Feast of the Madonna in Militello, which is celebrated on 8th September, one of the most exciting moments of the celebration takes place.
Before the statue is unveiled, and before the ritual celebrations, the crowd waits in muffled silence.
The statue is kept in a niche hidden by an iron sliding door that slowly opens to reveal the statue of the Madonna della Stella in all its shining beauty.
