Italy has an established tradition of "white trains" to take infirm and invalids to sacred places for the possibility of a miracle, often fervently desired by the family. These journeys gather pilgrims from small villages and remote places, giving a rare opportunity for hundreds of bedridden people to interrupt their lonely lives for a religious holiday. We followed a group of 100 pilgrims on their journey from Calabria, Italy, to Lourdes, France. A 35-hour journey on an obsolete train.
