Bring Italian Spring Traditions at Home

March is a truly unique month here in the heart of Italy. While the northern regions are still shrouded in the icy grasp of winter, central Italy undergoes a magical transformation as the first hints of spring become palpable. The entire landscape comes alive with the promise of warmer days.

During this time of the year, the local markets are bursting with vibrant flowers and bustling with activity. There are delightful flower markets to explore, and in addition, various truffle festivals grace the region. These festivals offer you the opportunity to savor a variety of delectable dishes centered around the prized truffle.

On the 19th of March, we celebrate the feast of San Giuseppe, a tradition deeply rooted in many parts of Italy, especially in our charming little towns. It’s a time when enormous bonfires illuminate the night, marking the symbolic transition from winter to spring. These festivities have ancient pagan origins that were later embraced by Christians.

The essence of March in central Italy lies in this magnificent blend of tradition, nature’s awakening, and the rich tapestry of local celebrations. To recreate the magical atmosphere of March in Italy, you can take a few delightful steps:

Bring Nature Inside

March in Italy is when flowers start to bloom. Adorn your home with fresh flowers, especially yellow mimosa, which is a symbol of this season in Italy.

Market Day

Emulate the lively Italian markets by visiting local farmers’ markets, picking up seasonal produce, and enjoying the vibrant, communal atmosphere.

Truffle Tasting

Host a truffle-themed dinner party and experiment with truffle-based recipes, such as pasta dishes or risottos, to experience the flavors of the season.

Bonfire Evening

Flower Crowns
