Easter in South Tyrol

What’s new from South Tyrol’s farms

Easter in South Tyrol
great importance has always been placed on the changing seasons and their festivals on South Tyrol’s farms and every time of the year has its own special moments, especially Easter.

Holy Week, for example, the week before Easter, always takes on a restful, calm character as the run-up to the big Easter celebrations. Starting on Monday, the usual decorative flowers are replaced with twigs and branches and just before local communities hold their Maundy Thursday evening meal, Easter eggs are coloured using traditional and natural methods, such as dying the shells with onion skins.

On the afternoon of Good Friday, a calm descends and the bell with the deepest pitch in the village church chimes solemnly at 15.00 for a quarter of an hour. Saturday sees a transformation in mood: preparations for Easter Sunday are made and a more carefree atmosphere returns.

The cheerful mood of the people, the decorations, the ’Easter egg pecking’ on the church square after the Easter mass, and the traditional festive meal round off Easter Sunday.
