The Good Friday Procession in Orte, also called the Procession of the Dead Christ, is one of the oldest rites in Italy.

The seven confraternities depart from their respective parishes and reach the Mother Church of Santa Croce. Supported by 14 men, the coffin of the Dead Christ parades followed by the Machine of Our Lady of Sorrows, supported by 8 people.

Once arrived in Piazza della Libertà, the brotherhoods gather around the coffin of Christ and arrange themselves forming a heart-shaped figure around the coffin.
