The period of Venetian rule in Cyprus (1489-1570) – a time when Nicosia was the administrative centre of the island – is considered very important, as it shaped local social, economic and cultural life, and determined the European character of the island. This short period has left also a rich linguistic heritage.
The portal MUBI (streaming service/ curator/ publisher/ distributor/cinema lover) and Cinema Made in Italy are hosting this year’s festival, 16-29 April.

In the period of Lent, when Easter is approaching, in the southern Langhe (Piemonte), especially in the Roero and Monferrato area, in the area now a UNESCO heritage site, there was an ancient custom among young farmers: to go and “sing the eggs ”- that is to go to the richest farms in the week before Easter and ask for eggs as a gift, singing and playing.
Colomba pasquale or Colomba di Pasqua (“Easter Dove” in English) is an Italian traditional Easter bread. The dough for the colomba is made in a similar manner to panettone, with flour, eggs, sugar, natural yeast and butter. The dough is then fashioned into a dove shape (colomba in Italian) and finally is topped with pearl sugar and almonds before being baked. Some manufacturers produce other versions including a popular bread topped with chocolate, or pistacchio spread like the once done by Fiasconaro, that you can find at Phiale Wines & Foods!
