On Thursday 27th people from USA will celebrate their traditional Thanksgiving Day. As usual, the fourth Thursday of November marks this festivity which origin can be traced back to Sixteenth century religious disputes in England. Pilgrims migrated to USA apparently celebrated their first Thanksgiving Day in the year 1621, at Plymouth, shaping it as a harvest festival. Food traditionally associated to this festivity undoubtedly changed through the centuries (according to local productions), until we come to our days when stuffed turkey, pumpkin soup, potato puree and green beans, as well as brownies or pumpkin pie, are undisputed protagonists of American tables.
Many places in Rome will be celebrating together with their American guests on 27 November 2014 : from Norman Rockewell’s exhibition venue (Palazzo Sciarra, behind via del Corso), to Cinecittà World (the biggest amusement park dedicated to Italian cinema industry): ask Hotel Des Artistes staff for full details!
