Roughly events almost every year have become traditions followed almost the same order.
Top are those of the falls of large pots from the windows of buildings around Liston in the morning of Holy Saturday during the so-called first resurrection.
This Custom hapens around the island but has a special beauty in the Esplanade Square and the point of Pentofanaro next to Liston, due to the environment and the presence of big crowd.
