Lucca Gustosa 24

The rediscovery of our most important culinary traditions, but also a precious dialogue with other cultures and countries. A stage for a food and wine culture that enhances the flavours and delicacies from our territory and... international surroundings.

The tasty menu of Lucca Gustosa will involve many places in the city: Piazza Napoleone and Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, Palazzo Pretorio and Mercato del Carmine, for a weekend dedicated to taste and surprises.

All of the city's trade associations will be protagonists, with special initiatives aimed at fostering the delicacies and oldest culinary traditions from our territory.



The flavours of the countryside will converge in Piazza Anfiteatro, offering tastings of excellent local products.
The zuppa frantoiana PAT (frantoiana soup - traditional agricultural and food product) from the hills of Lucca,
the famous zuppa di farro (spelt soup) from Garfagnana,
necci (chestnut flour pastries) with ricotta cheese and the hill and mountain honey from Media Valle del Serchio.
