Civitavecchia (Lazio): The Little Shepherdess
December 23, 2016
In the evening of the 23rd of December, little “shepherd” boys and girls fill the streets of Civitavecchia, singing Christmas songs (in particular the traditional local song La Pastorella — “the little shepherdess”) and playing musical instruments in exchange for sweets and coins. The streets are filled with songs and music, a truly lovely traditional Italian Christmas evening.
