Le Casette degli Angeli
31 October - 3 November
Schiavi di Abruzzo (Chieti) is hosting its traditional, “Le casette degli Angeli” (The houses of the Angels). Children are encouraged to build with their Mothers a miniature house using recycled materials that can house a small votive lamp dedicated to a recently deceased loved one. Once blessed, the houses are used to decorate the central staircase of the town by the pine forest and can be viewed till the end of the month. Schiavi was once an ancient Slavic feudal town whose funeral folklore offers a rich array of beliefs and customs related to death. The souls of the dead are surrounded by a fervent and perpetual feeling of piety, as well as a belief that held the living and the dead in a frank and continuous “correspondence of loving senses”. From Monday 31st October 2022.
