The Italian word for Easter is "Pasqua" and it is a big holiday in Venice. The local stores sell wonderful, delicious chocolate eggs in fancy wrappers. They are hollow and have a special prize inside. Would you like one?
Many families gather at home for a tradiational Italian dinner of artichokes. roasted lamb, and a special sweet bread called "Colomba" which means dove and is shaped like a dove. Others dine out with family and friends at local restaurants like Trattoria da Georgio where I'm meeting my friends Lucia and Stephan for lunch. Arrivederci!
