Filming Easter traditions in Italy with Rick Steves & home-made holiday treats: let’s reconnect!
In 2015 Roberto and I were consultants for the Italian parts of the filming of Rick Steve’s “Easter in Europe”. We went in search of the roots of Easter traditions in Italy that still today manifest in food as well as cultural and religious events.
With the American TV troupe we went out filming in off-the-beaten path towns. Cantiano (Marche) is one that we particularly loved and enjoyed filming with Rick Steves: the people of Cantiano are all still in our hearts. What made the visit unforgettable was that in Cantiano the whole town participates in an open air public performance of the passion of Christ.
Our Guest: Roberto Bechi, one-of-a-kind tour guide and owner of a small farm that produces wine, olive oil and pasta, will share some thoughts with us on why he chose some of the places filmed by Rick Steve’s Easter in Europe and on the significance of Easter in Italy.
We want to hear from you! if you have a special Easter recipe (Italian or not) that has meant something for you or your family be prepared to talk about it! Feel free to send me the recipes via email and I will share them with the participants after the event.
Join us and let’s enjoy this Palm Sunday together as we look towards spring and a new “rebirth”!
