At Uno Alla Volta, we are endlessly inspired by the beauty of Italy and the exquisite craftsmanship that comes with it. After all, our name is Italian for one at a time! We are continuously amazed by the stunning treasures that our Italian artisans continue to create, year after year. Their creativity brings us treasures for nearly every occasion – Halloween included!
In Italy, Halloween comes from the concept of “All Hallows Eve”, the night before All Saint’s Day, or Festa di Tutti i Santi in Italian. November 1st is a national holiday in the country, which celebrates all of the Catholic saints. The custom of dressing up the night before has started to become popular in Italy and other European countries that have borrowed the concept from many Anglophone countries, especially America. Knowing this, it makes sense that our Italian artisans are happy to create festive treasures for the occasion!
Celebrate Halloween with the European flair of these festive Italian treasures.
