This tool’s significance becomes apparent in the second funeral parade of the day. Now the stops are at bars and wineries: whoever holds a cassu is entitled to have it filled with excellent wines, while everyone in the parade (almost two thousand persons strong) can partake in the free sandwiches offered along the way. This phase can take quite a while, and the parade customarily ends at seven p.m. on the site of a bonfire. The celebrations aren’t over yet however. After dinner another torchlit parade goes back to the bonfire to burn the effigy of The Peru, read his humorous testament aloud – and for a spectacular fireworks show. Is it a wonder that the town requires one whole year to recover from such a busy day?
