We came across these curious hanging women in every small town we visited in the heel of Italy. The only thing we could establish about them is that they would hang there until Easter (These were taken back in February)

In Germany they have Walpurgis night at the end of April when the Witches meet, and the streets are decorated in a similar way, I think it's a Spring festival . ;>)
