Fishermen and their patron saint, St Erasmus – an annual three day celebration in Corsica!

Dernière mise à jour de cette page le 27/08/2013

Cantons concernés : Aiacciu

Not specifically for Corsica, but for all fishermen around the world, and as there is quite a population here, it is normal that he would be remembered and honoured every year.

Originally, the Brotherhood of St Erasmus regulated assistance within the community, under the protection of the saint, dressing in white gowns bordered with purple for this feast day.

A procession takes place in various towns, (Ajaccio, Bonifacio, Calvi, Erbalunga etc.,) on June 2nd, where the statue of St Erasmus is transported to the port with the blessings of the priests, thereupon boarding one of the boats and where a seafaring procession and benediction take place. Upon return to the port, a lively and festive aperitif takes over, and these are moments of sharing and relevance, as it remains a very popular outing. For three days, the association Pescadori in Festa organises numerous activities, for as I said, this is a traditional and festive moment, where the population participates willingly – the sea being a traditional companion, admired and respected. Concerts are programmed over these three days, where we’ll be appreciating Mai Pesce, Aria and Diana di l’Alba, and singers from Rusiu Valle Rustie & Centru di Corsica.
