Easter Traditions and Rites in Abruzzo

Join LifeInAbruzzo for a Facebook live chat  or via Zoom with special guest Abruzzese photojournalist, Giancarlo Malandra for a fascinating journey through Abruzzo to uncover the diverse rites and traditions that are celebrated over  the Easter period in the 4 provinces.  The online chat is in English (Italian question can be posed) and will take place:

Subjects included in the mix of video and photography presentation will be

  • Il Cireneo, Lanciano (CH) (Holy/Maundy Thursday)

There will be plenty of time to pose questions!

Giancarlo started his photography career aged 34, first as an amateur, and then he began documenting Abruzzo in 2006.  In 2012 he left his job in IT to become a full-time photographer.  He qualified as a journalist, 3 years ago and started his own wedding photography business that has taken him to France, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, the UK  and Mexico to shoot couple’s special day!

His first book contribution was dedicated to the 2009 earthquake called “3:32 the signs of the earthquake”, followed by one  called “Tesori d’Abruzzo”.  He has since published “Giulianova Timeless Seduction”, “Pescara Timeless Seduction”, “Abruzzo Timeless Seduction” and  “Abruzzo Grand Tour”.
