The Epiphany and the Tiramisù

Are you still sleeping off the New Year’s Eve?
Yet, here in Italy, we are already preparing for the feast of the Epiphany which usually closes the Christmas holidays.

The word “Epiphany” comes from the greek “Epiphany” means “appearance, an event”.
Occurred on the night between 5 and 6 January that the Magi visited Jesus to offer him gold, incense and myrrh.
Many are the legends that link the figure of this old woman with Epiphany ….
Some, of peasant origin, where tradition says the death and rebirth of nature, where the witch, that is the old year, was symbolically burned as a puppet, to appease the new crop.

This Feast, devoted primarily to children, is an auspicious festival,very old!

And if children, the witch will bring sweets, toys or charcoal (for the most mischievous )…. what we can expect?

Well, if the Epiphany does not get us anything, we can always console ourselves with a Tiramisù of POMPI pastry.

Believe me,POMPI is  an institution, not just for the Tiramisù …. try the Sacher cake!
Mini Cakes to carry with himself for a break so sweet!

And if you go to Piazza Navona …. pay attention to Epiphany Witches!

By, by old year…♬♪♩♬♪

It can still breathe the Christmas… but are we ready to celebrate New Year’s Eve?

If you do not want to throw in one of the many restaurants, and before you go to the squares of Rome, staring at the sky lit by fireworks, you can opt for a wonderful, romantic, energetic, catchy gospel concert!♪♬♩♪♫

Here in Rome, on the 31 night concert, the Roma Gospel Festival ends of this year, with the South Carolina Mass Choir ♬♪♩♫

45 unique voices that greet the old year, ranging from the old to the new gospel!
♪♬♩♫♪ But you have to hurry because even here, the places must be booked!

Okay… we want to close the Christmas Holidays, in a delightful restaurant in the center of Rome? IL GABRIELLO.

If you walk through the alleys near the Spanish Steps, and you do not know, it’s hard to see it!

From the entrance, a flight of stairs leads you in a splendid palace of the seventeenth century, where, precisely, is the restaurant!

Mediterranean cuisine, cozy, with vaulted ceilings… very traditional cuisine.
