It’s 1087, 62 sailors and a precious cargo: the arrival in Bari of the relic of St. Nicholas, a Saint who has changed the history of the whole city. The historical Procession celebrates the relationship between the inhabitants of Bari and the Saint who has arrived by the sea. Pilgrims from all over the world still rediscover their cultural and religious roots when they come to Bari.
