Madunnuccia this March 18 in Ajaccio

In Ajaccio, Madunnuccia is a major event of the year. It is an opportunity for residents to celebrate Our Lady of Mercy, who was proclaimed patron saint of the city in 1656, on the wishes of the Magnificent Elders, the municipal councilors of the time.

While the city was under the administration of the Republic of Genoa, the Ajaccians invoked the protection of Our Lady of Mercy to protect themselves from the plague epidemic which was then ravaging several regions of Italy. Their prayers were answered, because the plague never reached Ajaccio.

In recognition, a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Mercy was erected in Ajaccio Cathedral.

Since then, Madunnuccia has been celebrated with fervor every March 18 by the Ajaccians, around rituals perpetuated for centuries. The two days of celebrations are preceded by a novena beginning on March 9. This period is marked by a series of prayers, litanies and devotions in honor of the saint.

This year, a charity concert will take place at Notre-Dame de l'Assomption Cathedral on Saturday March 16 at 8:30 p.m., initiated by the deputy mayor, Christophe Mondoloni. On this occasion, groups of Corsican singers and musicians will perform with the aim of raising funds for the renovation of certain parts of the building.

This cultural initiative follows that proposed by Rose-Marie Ottavy-Sarrola, second prioress of the Brotherhood of the Ladies of Mercy and deputy mayor, and Paul Mancini, saxophonist and municipal councilor responsible for municipal music.

The latter organized a first charity concert on February 2, the proceeds of which entirely financed the new chestnut wood base of the Madunnuccia. Ajaccians will have the opportunity to discover it during these festivities.

I Santi

🌺 All Saints' Day in Corsica: Celebration of Memory and Traditions 🌺

On this solemn day of All Saints' Day, Corsica is adorned with melancholy and contemplation to honor the memory of its deceased. It is a day steeped in traditions deeply rooted in Corsican history and culture.

🕊️ The island of Beauty, land of memory 🕊️

Corsica, an island with a strong character, is transformed into a sea of chrysanthemums and lights to pay tribute to loved ones who have left us. Cemeteries are adorned with colorful flowers, and families come together to perpetuate the memory of their ancestors.

🌿 The tradition of chrysanthemums 🌿

The chrysanthemum, the emblematic flower of All Saints' Day, is carefully placed on the graves, creating a carpet of vibrant colors which contrasts with the sobriety of the place. Each flower seems to be the reflection of a memory, an emotion, a story.

⛪ Churches, guardians of the Corsican soul ⛪

Corsica, deeply imbued with spirituality, sees its churches welcoming the faithful in an atmosphere marked by prayer and meditation. The special All Saints' Day masses remind us of the importance of faith and communion in Corsican society.

🕯️Glimmer of hope in the darkness 🕯️

The lit candles bear witness to the hope that persists even in the darkness of loss. The flickering flames symbolize the eternal memory of the deceased and the continuity of their presence in our lives.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Family reunion and sharing 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

All Saints' Day in Corsica is also an opportunity for family gatherings. Meals are prepared with care, and families gather around tables laden with traditional dishes to share moments of conviviality and love.

On this special day, Corsica celebrates life through the memory of those who are no longer among us. All Saints' Day is the legacy of a rich history, the perpetuation of deeply rooted traditions and the testimony of the eternal love that the island has for its departed. 🌹💫

Easter in Corsica (part 5): Sunday


In opposition to the sadness of Saturday, the day of Sunday is that of joy for the faithful and the celebration of the resurrection. It is therefore this Sunday which is the most important day in this Easter week as evidenced by the return of the bells which ring again after being silent since Thursday evening. This return of the bells is symbolized today by the famous Easter egg hunt.
It is also the end of Lent and its privations for Catholics.
Traditionally in Corsica, this Easter Sunday is accompanied by traditional dishes such as lamb but also many cakes, the most famous of which is the cacavellu.

To taste

As often in Corsica, religious festivals are associated with dishes or elements of island cuisine. For Easter, the cake is called the Cacavelli (or Campanile).This round pastry (a crown), plain, with anise, orange blossom or lemon, is adorned with at least one hard-boiled egg. It marked the end of the period of Lent. She now accompanies the famous Merendella for coffee! In the far south, Sciacci are eaten.

Corsican cuisine at Easter is also marked by the traditional milk-fed lamb, often served during the Sunday Easter meal.

Easter in Corsica (part 3): Good Friday


Good Friday is the strongest day of this Easter week. It retraces the Way of the Cross of the martyred Christ. The most famous procession in Corsica then takes place in Sartène.

The Catenacciu is undoubtedly one of the most publicized events on the island. The small town of Sartène then experienced a moment of incomparable fervor, shared by the entire population of the island who met to commune around the red penitent carrying the heavy cross and the chain (hence its name) for several hours in the streets of ""the most Corsican of Corsican towns"".
This moment of rare emotion is also a very impressive "spectacle" to discover if you are lucky enough to be in Corsica during these Easter holidays. Be sure to respect the sacredness of this moment for the participants.

Other equally strong processions are taking place in Corsica this Friday, such as the Incatenatu of Bisinchi.

Easter in Corsica (part 1): Sunday, crucettes

Sunday, Palm Sunday will mark the beginning of Holy Week.

Corsican singularity still very popular among the faithful, the crucettes in palms. They are blessed before mass and then placed in homes or cars as a lucky charm. A tradition that requires preparation.
But the essential crucettes are still made in churches. At Patrimonio, catechism students are put to work and conscientiously learn design techniques.

Often, the Palms are made with boxwood or olive tree. But in Corsica, by tradition, flippers are used. ""At first you don't really understand, but afterwards, as soon as you know how to do it, it's easy. Me, I think it's important to be there, because if there's no one who teaches us knowledge, it's going to be lost,"" said a young boy.
Today, crucette creation isn't just a hands-on workshop. The confreres of Patrimonio are there to teach the children of the village the meaning of Palm Sunday.
The beginning of the Passion of Christ. "" To symbolize the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, around the palms, around the olive tree. We will present this on the day of mass to have them blessed, to protect the Christian all year round , ""says André Dominici, colleague from San Martinu.

Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week. A major moment of the religious year in Corsica. And a tradition that is not ready to disappear, since apparently, the succession is assured.

But where did Department 20 go?

When you go through the list of French departments everything makes sense: Ain starts the list (alphabetical sorting), and is assigned the INSEE code 01, Aisne follows with code 02, Allier with code 03, etc. . Then crash, past the 19 of Corrèze no trace of the 20 , but instead we see the 2A of Corse-du-Sud appear, then the 2B of Haute Corse , then the list continues with the 21 of department of the Côte-d'Or. But where did the 20 go? As you will have understood, this is the Corsican exception, it has turned into 2A and 2B. But why ?

The idea of a specific numerical code for French territorial entities emerged as early as 1935. In 1941, the National Statistics Service produced an official geographical code bringing together the codes and descriptions of municipalities, cantons, arrondissements, departments, foreign regions, countries and territories. But there is a notable exception to these rules: the 2 Corsican departments have a letter in their INSEE identifier. Until 1975, Corsicawas a department in its own right, the INSEE number 20 was assigned to it. On January 1, 1976, the Isle of Beauty was split into 2 departments . In order not to shift all the numbers, our thinking heads decide to delete the 20 and to assign the 2A and 2B to the newly created departments.

The whole team of our guest house wishes you a Merry Christmas

Even if Christmas was celebrated in Corsica long before the arrival of Santa Claus, the famous song, sung by all French children on Christmas Eve, was originally performed by the famous Corsican singer, Tino Rossi. Even though this song has become a tradition, it is not the only one.

Long before Christianity, the winter solstice evoked the rebirth of light and later the nativity of Christ. Corsica, like many other regions, was already celebrating this period.
On Christmas Eve, we fasted, we ate only after midnight mass, and above all we gathered as a family around the Christmas meal on the 25th at noon. The gifts that were given were fruits or plants that symbolize life, such as orange, holly and strawberry tree. You could decorate your house with a branch of strawberry tree (symbol of happiness and nativity) on which you hung apples in reference to the Bible. The young people of the village gathered in small groups and went to visit 7 families in the village: it is the custom of the 7 vigils.Each time they brought a log of wood to heat the hearth and share the pastries prepared by the mother of the family.

At the Rocchiu! Le Rocchiu is the Corsican name for the Christmas stake, lit in front of the village church. It was prepared by the children of the village and set on fire after midnight mass. On December 25, after the fire had completely disappeared, the still hot ashes were picked up by the villagers, who added them to the ashes of their own fireplaces to heat their homes.

According to legend, you had to put as many logs in the fireplace as there were guests. Otherwise, the following end of year celebrations would be bereaved by the missing number of logs.

As for nativity scenes, they did not arrive in churches until the 19th century and in homes in the 20th century.

The traditional Christmas meal in Corsica:

- starter: mullet eggs or scrambled eggs with sea urchins, but prisuttu and coppa are also very common starters.

- main course: roast lamb and polenta.

- dessert: ""Ceppu di Natale Castagniu"", that is to say: the Yule log with chestnut.

Bon Natale à tutti Merry Christmas to all.

All Saints Day in Corsica

For All Saints, I suggest you visit the cemeteries of the island of beauty. The marine cemeteries of Bonifacio and Ajaccio are particularly famous, but they are not the only ones. At the heart of each village, at the foot of each church, you can visit some very beautiful ones. Originally they housed foreigners who died in Corsica, far from their homeland, while large families had private chapels. As if at the bottom of the garden stood the house of the living, and near the road, that of the dead. The imperial decree on burials of June 12 , 1804 which is at the origin of the creation of cemeteries will take time to impose itself in Corsica. Even today, families have magnificent vaults built in the alleys of cemeteries.
