Rome, April 1 - The economic crisis plaguing Italy
as well as cold, wet weather kept many Italian families from
traditional Easter Monday trips and celebrations.
More than half of Italians surveyed said they were staying
home rather than taking the traditional Easter Monday trip to
the countryside, according to farmers' association Coldiretti.
And among those who were still planning to get away for the
day, about 17% were intending to do nothing more than go for a
picnic, the group said in a report released Monday.
Only 12% were headed for the seaside, 10% were spending the
holiday in the city, and about 8% were going to the mountains.
Besides budget constraints, poor weather across much of the
peninsula may have also been a factor in the decision to stay at
home.
Some snow in parts of the north as well as steady rain
showers and uncertain weather across the central and south
dampened enthusiasm for the Easter weekend.
Blustery winds were also felt across Italy's centre and
south, and led civil protection authorities to issue a weather
warning for intense rain and storm activity in Lazio, Sardinia
and parts of the Campania region.
The Coldiretti survey also found that only about 3.4
million Italian families were taking an Easter vacation, down
from the four million who had such plans last year and 4.5
million in 2011.
According to Coldiretti, nearly 18 million Italian
households planned to spend Easter at home.
