"Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi" as the Italian proverb goes - "Christmas with your relatives, Easter with whomever you want". However, for all practical purposes, Easter is an important religous holiday in Italy, second to Christmas, with an important emphasis placed on spending time with family. Easter celebrations will be prevalent all throughout the country with many local and holiday traditions. Lamb and eggs, along with seasonal vegetables, especially artichokes, will be popular dishes this time of year. Italian Easter Bread is also a popular item this time of year. You will also see colorful displays of chocolate eggs in many shop windows, but the tradition of the Easter Bunny in Italy is not widely practiced.
