Things you can do at Halloween in Milan

A holiday celebrated mainly in Anglo-Saxon countries, Halloween, which means ‘All Saints’ Eve’, is also increasingly celebrated in our country.

But is it really so far from our traditions? Actually, absolutely not.
In fact, going around asking for gifts in homes while wearing a mask on the days of the commemoration of the dead is an ancient custom in Sardinia and is called Mortu Mortu, while in Friuli there is ,since a long time, La Fiesta dalis Muars, which falls on 31 October. So if you want to celebrate Halloween in Milan too, here are some ideas!
