The festival 'I Sapori del Borgo', a food and wine festival featuring typical local products, with tastings and themed events, will take place at Ponte dell'Olio on Sunday 13 November 2016.
From 9 a.m. until the late afternoon it will be possible to buy and to taste the local produce (and not only local) at the stands of the Via del Gusto and at the market of the Campagna Amica of the Coldiretti (Farmers' Association).
Soemthing new this year is the prize to be awarded to the best exhibit of the festival: the coupons that can be purchsed at the entrance will be used, in fact, not only for the tastings but also to vote for the "Exhibitor who knows his stuff - the 'Espositore coi Baffi'", that is, the one who gives you the best tasting experience of the day.
This 18th edition of the event will give ample space to the mushrooms and truffles of the Nure valley; in addition, there will be a truffle-hunting competiton between dogs near the Antiche Fornaci.
Another novelty for 2016 is the exhibitiion "Uncommon Birds of Prey" ('Rapaci fuori dal Comune') in the Park of the Villa Rossi between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., entrance ticket 4 euro per person; free for children up to 5. At 4 p.m. simulation of flight in piazza delle Fornaci.
The restaurant area, with space to seat 500 people, is in piazza I Maggio, and will offer typical menus from three well-known restaurants in Ponte dell'Olio, with an area dedicated to children organised by the Centro educativo Cip e Ciop.
