Vigolzone - Festa del Tortello De.Co.
From Friday 21 to Wednesday 26 July 2017
The popular Festa del Tortello De.Co. will return to Vigolzone between Friday 21 and Wednesday 26 July 2017, a gastronomic event dedicated to the typical dish of Piacenza.
Six festival evenings at the municipal sports ground, with food stands and the best liscio orchestras.
The festa is dedicated to the Tortello con la coda, the famous primo piatto piacentino that received the De.Co. award, la ‘Denominazione di origine comunale’ in 2006 from the municipality of Vigolzone; Veronelli had this idea in 1998 as a way to safeguard local products.
The tortelli con la coda are prepared following the traditional recipe of Piacenza, handed down from generation to generation. For months before, the volunteers of the Pro Loco of Vigolzone meet and prepare the many tortelli in the shape of sweet wrappers, all by hand. They will then be served, according to tradition, with melted butter and grated parmigiano cheese.
During the evenings, guests will be able to use the 380 sq m steel dance floor and there will be about 4000 seats available. As usual, there will be a fireworks display by the Maestro Bernocco on the evening of Monday 24 July.
Every evening, ample open green area with games for children.
In the event of bad weather, the event could be affected by changes.
