Festivals, shows, fairs, concerts and events, one after the other, animate the squares and alleyways of the old town. There is something for everyone and you can’t help but get involved. If you look at the calendar you will be amazed to see such a variety of events. Organized by the Town Council and local associations to celebrate the past revitalizing old traditions. Enjoying the pleasure of being in a place still true for nature, art, history, cuisine, far from crowded places. The magic heart of Italy.
The events don’t all look to the past. The Festival delle Nazioni has become an international occasion. The Antique Book Fair is well known for its high quality contents. The Horse Show is one of the most important in Italy. Then there is the Christmas Crib Exhibition, Tiferno Comics (dedicated to Lupo Alberto), the Concorso Musicale Zingarelli etc. A historical atmosphere to successfully created when the Historic Crafts Day, the Goose competition and the cross-bow contest are staged. Then there are the religious events, such as, the Good Friday Procession and the donation of the candle on the patron saints day.
Not to be forgotten are the markets and fairs such as the cattle fair that has again become a tradition as it was in the past. Excellent local produce can be enjoyed at the rural festivals that follow old, country traditions. The truffle is to be considered the” king” of the kitchen in this respect. The White Truffle Festival that takes place in November in the squares and alleyways of the town centre is just the last of a series of shows dedicated to this first-class product. So there are events for everyone that continue all year and go from the traditional to the contemporary. You can choose for yourself .
