Easter (Pasqua in Italian) is an important day on the Christian calendar, particularly in Italy. The exact date of Easter varies each year but always falls on a Sunday sometime between late March and late April. On this day observing Christians all over the country attend mass (prayer service). Many towns and villages hold special parades and processions on the days leading up to and the day after Easter Sunday. Because Easter is a public holiday in Italy, most banks and many shops are closed.
