In Italian folklore, La Befana is an old woman who delivers gifts to children throughout Italy on Epiphany Eve (the night of January 5) in a similar way to St. Nicholas or Santa Claus. A popular belief is that her name derives from the Feast of Epiphany or in Italian La Festa dell’Epifania.

Michelle Longega Wilson, an 11 years old author,  will talk about the history of La Befana and every kid is invited to recite a Befana poem.

The movie: “La Freccia Azzurra” will close the evening.
