Festival of the Marrone del Chiese

The chestnut is a plant of Mediterranean origin, growing between 300 and 1000 metres. Chestnuts differ from chestnuts not so much in size as in the quality of the flesh, which is fine-grained and very sweet-tasting.

First edition of the festival dedicated to the chestnut with lunch, guided tours and roasted chestnuts.

PROGRAMME:

9.45am: greetings from municipal and provincial authorities.

10.00am: conference "La castanicoltura del Chiese: una risorsa per l'economia, il territorio e la comunità".

Speakers:

  • "The resilient chestnut tree, what prospects for productive valorisation?"
    Alberto Manzo - Ministry of Agriculture Food Sovereignty and Forestry
  • "The ancient Italian chestnut cultivars; a high quality heritage for the recovery of abandoned farmland".
