Halloween - Samhain
31 October 2017
October 31 Riolo Terme celebrates the 24th Halloween anniversary: Samhain Celtic New Year.
In Riolo Terme (RA) is celebrated the Samhain according to the rites and cultures of ancient Romagna.
Even in Italy, following the traditions of the Anglo-Saxon world, Halloween is celebrated as a kind of "carnival" out of season, with the slogan "Trick or Treat!".
On the hills of Romagna in the province of Ravenna and in the small town of Riolo Terme, this event, re-introduces rituals, masks, ritual eating, fires and Romagna culture of a very ancient age. In this area, according to the Celtic culture that was present here, the transition from October to November was considered New Year's Eve. It was believed that the doors of the world of the dead opened and the dead returned to earth to "settle everything" between the end of the agricultural production cycle and the next one.
To revive this ancient and fascinating reality in Riolo Terme, on the night of October 31, the 24th edition of the Halloween Night - Samhain Celtic New Year is scheduled.
