Event descriptions

  • What is a Sagra?

    A Sagra is a village festival which is basically an open air restaurant. There is generally music and depending on the village there may be also a few stalls with products made by the villagers. The food is good and cheap,it is a very country atmosphere and you will be surrounded by loud Italians.
    Every sagra is for a specific type of food. There will be starters, first courses and second courses all made with the specific item. There are also desserts and wine and water.
    When you arrive at the sagra (you will find it easily from all the cars that are parked in the area of the village where the festival is held) you must order what you want from a little booth where you will need your elbows and Italian dictionary (the menus are only in Italian). After you have paid you will be given a form with what you ordered. Find a place to sit and give the form to one of the waiters who will then bring you your food.

  • What is a Fiera?

    A fiera can be an exhibition, fair, or village festival. Depending on where it is held you can tell what sort of event it is. If it is held in a small village it is a village festival, while if it is held in a fortress or stadium in a town then it is an exhibition or fair, often you are also able to buy the goods on exhibit.
