In Italy, Easter Monday is known as La Pasquetta, which is literally translated as Little Easter. After the solemn and reflective Easter season (Pasqua), it’s an informal community fete, enjoyed outdoors with family and friends.

La Pasquetta – Celebrating Easter Monday the Italian Way

Embraced with a joyful spirit, this national holiday sees families pack up the leftovers from the Easter feast into picnic baskets and head off to parks, beaches, vineyards and roadside meadows to enjoy the spring sunshine and warm breezes.

Also known as Lunedi dell ‘Angelo, or Monday of the Angels, it’s a day to remember the two Marys who, upon finding the sepulchre of Christ to be empty, were comforted by angels.
