Pescara - The Sette Dolori Statue / Una statua e i suoi fedeli
Every morning at 5 at least 600 faithfuls enter the basilica of Pescara Colli to pray before the statue or listen to Guglielmo, a disciple to Padre Pio. All the precious ex-voto and the jewels of the statue are now gone in the hands of unscrupulous thieves. Each year thousands of pilgrims visit the sanctuary, inaugurated on 30 may 1757 by the bishop of Atri, Gennaro Ferrelli, and each year the statue leaves the church for a great festival.
