"Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, man cannot live without a spiritual life" Buddha. Sant'Agata is the religious festival of the patron saint of the city of Catania and considered the third most important Catholic festival. I am neither a Catanese nor a believer, but since 2015 after I moved to Catania I cannot stop photographing it. Maybe I'm just photographing my search for God. In these photos the initial stages of the celebrations.
