Spring in Roccastrada: the territory and its flavors

From 01/04/2024 to 16/06/2024
A rich calendar of events made possible thanks to collaboration with the Pro Loco associations

With the arrival of spring, Roccastrada resumes its campaign to promote the territory and its typical products. This is the result of an idea that was tested last year, when, thanks to the collaboration between the Municipal Administration and the Pro Loco Associations of the territory, a calendar of promotional initiatives was planned for a period of the year, spring, which is less dense in events.
Through a shared path and a participatory process involving all six Pro Loco Associations of the territory, given the excellent result in terms of attendance and positive feedback from last year, a series of events have also been planned for this second edition, distributed throughout the territory on the theme of promoting typical products. In collaboration with municipal offices, a calendar of events has been planned that, in addition to promoting oil, wine, and chestnuts, typical of our territory, includes collateral events ranging from culture to the environment, with walks, tastings, and exhibitions.
  • The calendar of events and initiatives "Spring in Roccastrada: the territory and its flavors" will begin on Monday, April 1, Easter Monday, with the Pro Loco of Ribolla organizing "Easter Monday on the lawn": from 10:00 to 16:00 a guided walk in the places of the mine with a picnic starting from the Vi.Vi.Mi center.
  • Sunday, May 5, will be the turn of the Pro Loco Piloni/Torniella with the event "The Val di Farma and its flavors": from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the new multipurpose structure in via Senese, presentation of local typical products illustrated by the producers themselves and guided tasting in various preparations.
  • The tour in the territory continues on Sunday, May 19, when the Pro Loco Sasso&Forte together with the Pro Loco Roccatederighi will jointly organize "Walking among the flavors": from 10:00 to 18:00 panoramic walk starting from the Fonte di Vandro park and arrival in Piazzetta Senesi. Tastings along the way.
  • Saturday, June 1, will be the turn of the Pro Loco of Sticciano with the event "Not only priest stranglers...", during which, from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at the multipurpose structure in Via Vecchia, there will be an evening of tasting and promotion of local typical products accompanied by a theatrical performance and an art exhibition.
  • The capital will be the closing, where the Pro Loco Roccastrada from Friday 14 to Sunday 16 June organizes "Markets on the Hill": from 3:00 pm to 12:00 pm in the historic center of Roccastrada exhibition of artisan products and re-proposal of ancient trades, with the presentation of old environments and the presence of working animals. Itinerant musical entertainments and guided tours in the historic center with tastings on the terraces of the Colle will frame the three days.
"With the aim of continuing the promotion campaign of activities and events aimed at enhancing the territory in terms of tourist, environmental, and traditional rediscovery - these are the words of councilor Elena Menghini -, in line with the objectives and programmatic directions of this Administration, taken up significantly for two years with events dedicated to oil and wine, we have again invested in the projects of the Pro Loco associations of the territory which, when called upon to collaborate, always respond in an exemplary manner. Following the excellent experience of last year, when the planned events were a great success both in terms of attendance and the quality of the offering, we have decided to repeat that experience in the spring period, which usually lacks initiatives, also considering that the associations operate massively in the summer period with their festivals and parties that vitalize our territory. The invitation to everyone, residents and tourists alike, is to adhere to and participate in these initiatives that will offer the opportunity to taste excellent products in an uncontaminated natural landscape".
