La Madonna che Scappa in Piazza
On Easter Sunday the ancient city of Sulmona, which is located in the Abruzzo region, reenacts that moment when Mary sees her resurrected son Jesus for the first time. The celebration is appropriately called La Madonna che scappa in piazza (Our Lady running in the Square) and it has been a tradition that the town of Sulmona has celebrated since the 18th century.

Easter: An Italian Child's Perspective
Like most religious holidays, Easter is taken more seriously in Italy than it is in the United States. Many people - even those who don't usually go to church - attend Mass throughout Holy Week and on Easter Sunday. Many participate in outdoor reenactments of the Stations of the Cross. Although you'll find chocolate eggs stuffed with toys in many a store window, you will not hear mention of the Easter bunny or chickadees or Peeps. Still, the children in Italy look forward to this time of year and have traditions that uplift their religious faith but also are entertaining.

Stations of the Cross
Located in the Montagna Spaccata in Gaeta, Italy is a passageway that some call the Stations of the Cross or Way of the Cross. This passageway is lined with 14 paintings depicting Jesus' faithful journey on what has become to be known as Good Friday many centuries ago. This photo gallery will take you station to station so you can follow Jesus on his journey.

Palm Weaving Tutorials
One of the fascinating traditions that my family does for Palm Sunday is to create decorative designs using palms. Here are a variety of tutorials containing step by step guides to help you create a braid, cone, cross, crown of thorns and a rose bud from palms.
