Things to do in Rome: All Saints’ Day – All Souls’ Day

(1-2 November)
Also known as “Ognissanti” in Italian, it traditionally honors all those who have died for the church. An epochal event and a pillar of christian tradition, its liturgical celebration begins at Vespers on the evening of 31 October and ends at the close of 1 November. Associated with All Saints’ Day, is All Souls’ Day, called “Il giorno dei Morti”, that is a day of prayer for the dead, particularly but not exclusively one’s relatives. In Western Christianity the annual celebration is now held on 2 November, which is when the pope celebrates mass at Verano Cemetery and Romans travel en masse to visit family graves. These italian religious national holidays are very heart-felt and we suggest to come and visit Italy and Rome in this particular period of the year, to know italian deep-rooted traditions and customs.
