When: October 27, 2019
On Sunday October 27 the Museum of the Rural Culture of Bentivoglio hosts an event dedicated to the fruits of the autumn of the Bolognese countryside.
Set among the suggestive Villa Smeraldi, where the Museum is located, and its beautiful park, the Open Day will celebrate the genuine and traditional flavours of the local vegetables of the season, like pumpkins, medlars, jujubes and pears, with a special consideration for the "ancient fruits", namely the wide variety of fruits forgotten by the intensive farming, cultivated in the Museum's own orchard (the Pomario).
The history and the traditions of each fruit variety will be narrated by the local producers in an exhibition market including tastings and trade.
The event also features workshops for children and adults, exhibitions and shows.
Timetable: 10AM - 7PM
