Fiera dei Morti

This year’s fall break coincided with Italy’s national holiday, falling on November 1st, , a day dedicated to honoring loved ones who’ve passed away. Locals here in Perugia celebrate the day amid family, friends and lots of food while outside of town near the stadium the annual fair is in full swing–complete with carnival rides, food and an enormous market called Fiera dei Morti (Fair of the Dead). A smaller market in the center of Perugia is set up and vendors are selling everything from homemade treats like strudel, cured meats and cheeses and handmade crafts. The fair goes on until November 6th.
