Italy’s Good Witch Lands on Bagni di Lucca

labefana2Tomorrow La Befana arrives. She is the generous hag who fills children’s stockings in Italy. A corruption of the word ‘epifania’ , the day commemorating the coming of the three wise men, la befana is celebrated with many festive events especially directed to children.

 

In Bagni celebrations start at 3 pm at the teatro academico. Brave the rain which seems continuous over the past few days and join in if you are around.
