Prezza Artichoke Festival
10 June @ 18:30 - 11 June @ 23:30 CEST
Prezza’s Artichoke & Olive Oil Sagra celebrates the artichokes that grow on just one side of this small fortified town that sits on a spur of the Sirente.
In times gone by artichokes were the staple that many families depended on to survive. This affected some of the older members of the community as children, yet all the ladies still have the enthusiasm to don the gloves that counter the black hands that artichokes can produce and positively revel in prep for the artichoke sagra.
The two-day programme begins at 18.30 each evening!
Discover the history of the event and try Mimina the Butcher’s Wife wonderful recipe for stuffed artichokes!|
