Italy loves its food and loves a festival to prove it!

Festivals

During summer there are

more than you could visit

At times during the summer barely an evening goes by without a local festival (a festa or a sagra) taking place in at least one of the villages in our valley, if not multiple festivals on the same night. These are basically small to medium-sized fundraising events, usually run by the local ‘circolo’s (village clubs) or ‘pro loco’s, and are an opportunity for the locals to get together on a warm summer’s evening for a no-frills but delicious meal, often with music and dancing to follow. It’s a great way to experience the real, local Italy, and if you really want to feel like you’ve scratched beneath the surface of local life then an evening at one of the many events like this shouldn’t be missed. The valley has annual festivities that are themed around celebrating grilled meat, the ham sandwich, fried donuts, Sorana beans, and chestnuts to name just a few! Take a look on the Facebook page here to see a collection of local events coming up (they may not be posted in chronological order so have a scroll through).
