Holy Monday in Puglia: our tips for a green Pasquetta

After the celebrations of the upcoming weekend, Italian tradition says to get out from houses on Holy Monday.

We call this day ‘Pasquetta’, the right time to enjoy the spring fresh breeze and sun. Since the ’60s Italians used to have pic-nics on this day, having pasta-al-forno, colomba cakes and Easter eggs.

Hopefully this Holy Monday the weather would be quite fine, then the following are our suggestions.
