Procession of Braga Romana returned to the streets with the ’emperor’ in front

The Triumphal Procession of Braga Romana took place yesterday, a much-anticipated return after two years of a pandemic. Music, dance, theater, force, divinities and the “imperial power” itself cross the city where spectators are invited to participate by throwing flower petals as they pass, in a path perfumed by incense.
