With her old tatty shoes, this funny and lovely old lady has always made children, teens and adults very happy, bringing sweets, candies and chocolates in her multicolored socks!
This year, you will have the chance to see the Befana and to celebrate her in several Italian cities and villages, which want to go on with traditions.
For instance, in Rome there will be the 25th edition of the beloved event “Viva la Befana” (“Long Live the Befana“), the traditional historic and folkloristic costumed parade which will bring to the capital many musical bands, folkloristic groups, in a historical commemoration with hundreds people who will parade following the Wise Men and the Befana along Via della Conciliazione.
