Pane Di Pasqua
Easter in Italy does not typically involve the Easter Bunny. It is a time of celebration and with that comes FOOD. Some of the foods your will encounter vary from region to region however some popular gifts or treats typically given at this time of year include a large hollow chocolate Easter Egg which has a prize inside and another is Pane Di Pasqua or Easter Bread.
A family tradition Mamma enjoys is giving all the children the hollow chocolate Easter Egg and a loaf of bread or Pane di Pasqua. Mamma’s version is lightly sweetened and she uses dough to wrap around a single egg. Some versions have an egg at either end of the bread and some like to paint the eggs.
