The Delta Gastronomic Pearls – Nature Festival 2018

Festival della Natura 2018

After the success of the first edition, the Nature Festival 2018 scheduled from 19th October to 4th November will live its second edition with a special study on the gastronomic pearls of the Po Delta: rice, hemp, truffles, mussels, clams and oysters.

Photographic exhibitions and thematic conferences, food and wine stands and tastings will be organized inside the Pomposa Abbey and the Este Castle of Mesola; exceptional testimonials will tell us about their cycling and birdwatching experience; guided tours and excursions by boat and by bicycle to discover the territory of the Po Delta Park, already declared a World Heritage Site and recently awarded with the recognition of the Po Delta Biosphere Reserve of the Unesco MAB program, will complete the varied tourist offer .

The event that will take place in the territory of the Municipalities of Codigoro, Mesola and Goro aims to de-seasonalize the local tourist offer by creating a bridge between the months of September and October and the holiday of 1st November.

Some advances on the program:

From 19th to 21st October Rice Days at Pomposa Abbey – Risotto tasting.

From 26th to 28th October Hemp Days at the Pomposa Abbey and the Canneviè Oasis – tasting of products based on Hemp

From 1st to 4th November Autumn Flavors at the Este Castle of Mesola – Tasting of products based on truffles and based on mussels, clams and oysters

Stay tuned!
