Arches of Bread, SicilyYour Road Trips Foodie would love to see this springtime display in San Biagio Platani, a small town in southern Sicily.

Called the Arches of Easter, it’s an event that involves creating a passageway of temporary “Gothic” arches, and then decorating with bas relief made of painted bread dough, herbs, and beans (like the putto at left).

Check out the video for more information on this unlikely but lovely village craft tradition.
