Vigolzone - Festa del Tortello De. Co.
From Friday 25 to Tuesday 29 July 2014
From Friday 25 to Tuesday 29 July 2014 Vigolzone is organising the traditional Festa del Tortello De.Co. - Tortello Festival, a food fair dedicated to the typical pasta dish of Piacenza.
At the end of July every year the Pro Loco of Vigolzone – which organises the festival – presents five evenings of dancing together with typical Piacenza dishes and the ‘tortello con la coda’, first produced in the kitchens of the Castle of Vigolzone to honour the illustrious poet Francesco Petrarca.
The festival takes place at the municipal sports ground: alongside the numerous food stands are games for children and a steel dance floor (380 sq m) ready for those coming from from all over to dance.
To open the celebrations on Friday 25 July is the Orchestra Bagutti, followed on Saturday 26 July by the Orchestra Massimo Dellabianca. On Sunday 27 July it will be the turn of Ketty and the Orchestra Piva while on Monday 28 July it will be the Orchestra Daniele Cordani that will entertain the public, who will have the chance to enjoy a fireworks display at the end of the evening. Finally on Tuesday 29 July there will be the Orchestra of Omar Codazzi.
Entrance ticket: 3.00 Euro. In case of bad weather, the Pro Loco reserves the right to postpone the evenings until the following weekend via a special communication.
