Corinaldo, Le Marche: Where to Celebrate Halloween in Italy

Corinaldo, Le Marche: Where to Celebrate Halloween in Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Now in its 19th edition, Corinaldo’s Halloween event (Festa delle Streghe) is also a big draw. This year, it takes place October 28-31, when the small town in Le Marche transforms into an open-air Halloween-themed park. The 2016 edition begins with the election of Miss Strega (Miss Witch), where everybody, no matter the age, nationality or sex, can participate. Halloween-themed sets will lit every corner of the village, which is enclosed by well-preserved 14th-century walls. Witches, skeletons and monsters, a haunted house, a “tilted room”, will all contribute to make the night as spookily fun as possible. There will also be music and dance performances. [...]

Men on ladders shrouded the street lights with red and black fabric and the bars and restaurants filled up with decorations until it became difficuilt to grab a quick coffee without picking up long strands of white cobweb or the occasional small black bat. Signs appeared on the street corners, directing us to the Vampire House, the Tunnel of Horror and the way out. [...]

Halloween Party in Le Marche, Italy 2014 | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Apparently Corinaldo is the capital of Halloween in all of Italy and La Festa delle Steghe (The Festival of Witches) is celebrated all over town. Corinaldo is in the province of Ancona, in the Marche region that is located east-central. It is a medieval walled city that is set on a hill, posing as both the perfect romantic get away as well as, who’d have thought it, Italy’s capital of Halloween. During the last week of October, the town transforms into a paradise for Halloween lovers, culminating on Halloween night with a huge party, live music, bonfires and special light displays that shine all over the town. This one starts of family friendly but then, once the drink gets flowing, anything could happen. More info.
