Ukulele Halloween in Italy

01 2009

Today we get to find out what Halloween or rather All Saints day is like in Italy. Well at least in some places…

A lesson by Cappa & Drago from UkeIt in Italian and English.

From what I could find, the dish made out of pork and chick peas mentioned in the song is called cisrà (actually made of chick peas and different parts of a pig) and comes from the Piedmont region.

This post on lifeinitaly.com reflects on the progression of Halloween in Italy and digs into the origin of Halloween, the Celtic Samhain rituals. Quite an interesting read.
