Carnevales in Calabria

On the first Saturday of Carnival they celebrate the “Feste dei Morti.” The poor and children go from house by house collecting alms. Then they march to the local cemetery where food and drink is served surrounded by the gravestones. The food known as “Colivi” is made from boiled wheat and was eaten at Paleo-Christian funerals.
