Even though Halloween in Italy is not as big of a festival as it is in the United States or Canada, there are some small towns in Italy that celebrate the spirt of Halloween.  One of them is the town of Venzone, in Friuli Venezia Giulia.  Every year for the past 20+ years, they put up an amazing pumpkin festival [Italian lesson:  Festa della Zucca] along the streets of the old medieval town. 

You can sample pumpkin pizza and other various items made from pumpkin including various breads, pies, cakes and biscuits from the "bancarelle" or stalls in the old town.  They also feature musicians, jugglers, entertainers, etc.

The festival takes place this weekend - below is a video from last year's celebration:
