- Why the colomba is eaten at Easter?
In English, colomba means Dove and is the traditional bread for Easter. The white dove has long been a symbol not only of Easter and peace, but also of rebirth, a value celebrated in the Pagan spring festivals. Nowadays, colomba is served at the end of Easter lunch alongside with chocolate eggs.
