Holiday in Italy today…November 1st

All Saints Day is celebrated November 1 and is a national holiday in Italy. On All Souls Day, November 2, Italians bring flowers to cemeteries to honor deceased relatives. During November you’ll find some music and cultural festivals and performing arts seasons are starting.
Truffles are the star of November Festivals in Italy. Many truffle fairs are held in northern (Piedmonte for one) and central Italy. You’ll also find chestnut festivals in many towns and villages during November. Restaurants will often have special meals highlighting truffles, chestnuts, or wild mushrooms especially on Sundays. Fall is a great time for eating in Italy !!!  Bon Gusto!
