Serramoncesca, PE, L’Aneme de Le Morte begin their celebrations on the 31st of October and run through to the 1st of November, the eve of ‘Il Giorno dei Morti’, (Day of the Dead). It’s a fun, very atmospheric celebration that takes Abruzzesi rites and customs with a hint of Halloween for a very traditional celebration ready for ‘i Morti’ on the 2nd of November that remembers deceased members of the family.
Expect lots and lots of pumpkins, great food, roasted chestnuts, and live music. Afternoon events for children include a local version of trick or treating with the children dressed up as deceased and carrying their carved ‘Cocce de morte’ (Jack O’Lanterns).
We will do our best to keep this calendar up to date, however in the case of last-minute cancellations due to adverse weather conditions, Covid outbreaks and so forth this may not always be possible. In these cases, you should contact the event organiser for a refund as we are not responsible for the events on the calendar, only compiling them into an easy list. As soon as we have news from an organiser when any event will be rescheduled we will update the calendar accordingly.
