Castelfranco honours its edible flower with a weekend completely dedicated to the delicious variety.

It begins with the inauguration of the 2021 edition of the Radicchio Festival on Saturday 3 December, with a press conference with authorities and journalists to present the project to enhance the product and the territory, which will see many initiatives come to life.

On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12, the appointment is in Piazza XXIV Maggio with the producers' exhibition market and, on Sunday morning, the award ceremony for the best radicchio. To enrich the activities in the square, there will be tastings in the centre together with producers, restaurateurs and students from the IPSSAR Maffioli: a unique opportunity to get closer to the winter flower and be enchanted by its sweet flavour.

The real novelty is "Radici&Radici", a seminar entirely dedicated to Radicchio, from its history to genetics, from agronomic patrices to its role in food. A morning full of talks in the wonderful setting of Villa Bolasco. In the same location, there will also be an exhibition of watercolours from the competition The history, work and production territory of Radicchio Variegato di Castelfranco.

There will also be a visit to discover the historic centre, with hints of the cultivation and production of radicchio. Reservations only, Sunday morning at 10.00 am, departing from Piazza XXIV Maggio.
