In the darkest weekend of the year some suggestions to keep to the subject with style.The Halloween weekend is knocking at the door: "trick or treat"? If you have already made the mummy candies to give to the children of your neighbourhood, you can start to prepare your own thrilling weekend. Costume parties, ghosts hunting, frightening places, and a look all to be created.
To experience a scary immobility you just have to loose yourselves among the semi-opened graves in the cemetery of Père Lachaise of Paris, of Highgate of London or in the small and magical one of the St. John Church in Edinburgh; or you can drop the anchor in Torno, on the Como Lake, just in front of Villa Plianiana: built in a cold gorge where the sun never arrives, the Villa shaped as a transatlantic comes with the horrific legend of its owner dead following a ghost into the turbid waters of the lake.
Histories of presences from the afterlife even at the Bardi Castle: the visitors may here experience a real ghosts hunt. In the rooms thought to be haunted, will be allowed to take photos, with the hope (and the terror…) of catching one of the spirits that live there. Even the sunny Naples during the night will become a mystery place: a guide will lead you in the dark streets to discover antique legends and characters tragic fates.
A brutal murder will be committed in front of the tables of the whom that opt for the formula "Dinner with Murder", while the ones that choose the Trattoria Da Oreste in Modena will be suddenly transported in an authentic atmosphere dated 1950: you are going to be sure that furniture, recipes and people in there have never seen the moon landing. For the delicate paltes we suggest near Mantova the Restaurant Ambasciata: to be chosen in the menu the pumpkin ravioli, as the orange vegetable will be the next weekend the real trait d'union between our tradition and the American one.
Stay in Mantova for the Lumere Event: the streets will be lighted by the candles inside the carved pumpkins disposed along the way and at the windows. Feeble light also in the LiverpoolNew York, headquarter of the Halloween tradition, is scheduled the traditional parade to scary adults and children. streets illuminated by thousand of lanterns in order to create a magical effect. In
Less mysterious atmospheres but many parties listed in the US: in New York is planned a big gig with 150 artists that will play in the meantime in four different warehouses, while the PlayBoy Mansion is organizing a big and luxury party with more than 600 people. And also the Celebs want to celebrate: Marilyn Manson, always ready for the witches night, will party at the Haze in the Aria Resot in Last Vegas, while Heidi Klum, whose outfit we wait to know, will be at LAVO in NYC.
Music and masquerade also in Milan: at the Magazzini Generali the required look is an original one: a formal smoking but with a masque to hide the face. Research of the own alter ego and need of freedom is the theme at the Hangar Bicocca where the show Vagabundos promises physic and mental camouflage. For the ones in London we suggest to start the evening at the London Acquarium: at the Lost Souls Event you will dance and have a drink between the most infernal creatures of the deeper seas.
If you have diced to stay with your family, you can try a night tour of the Egyptian Museum of Turin between sphinxes and mummies just with the light of a torch: believe me, you might find out to be scarier than your children will be.
Finally if you really cannot accept to be transformed in a witch or in a vampire but you don't want to feel like a fish out of water for all the night long, you need some focused shopping: Cop-Copine and Antonioli propose dark coloured clothes with sharp cuts (then you can wear them at the office if you desire), while for men the must (but just for one night) are the ties with small skulls, pumpkins and ghosts on a black background. Absolutely skulls-must-have also for her: the rings and the pendants with fired eyes from the Ugo Cacciaori collection are perfect. Total gothic also the Bijulesnyc proposal, while baroque is the collection by LuisaViaRoma.
If you are thinking at a night in near the fire, thus you cannot do nothing else but create the right atmosphere: nothing better that a class touch for the house with the lampshades by the duo Servomuto, while for yourselves you cannot renounce at the sexy elegance of the Halloween line byVictoria Secret.
In any way you will party, all of you just have some fun.
