Generally, Easter in Italy is celebrated for two days: Pasqua (Easter Sunday) and Pasquetta (Easter Monday). However, many other religious ceremonies are observed in the days and weeks leading up to Easter.
Easter Sunday’s date varies because it falls on the Sunday following the first full moon of spring each year.
