Pine Nut Festival 2015
Classe Pinewood - 1° Maggio Park - via Fosso Ghiaia, 1
Dates: 26/04/2015, 01/05/2015
The annual Pine Nut Festival takes place in the wonderful and green Pinewood of Classe.
This natural product – much appreciated for its therapeutic properties and harvested since the 18th century – will be celebrated in the food stands with pine nut specialties. Exhibitions, markets and archery performances complete the festival.
The harvesting of pine nuts traditionally started in autumn; in spring, the pine cones were spread on the barnyards in the pine forests and then threshed. The summer or fire heat made the pine cones open and let their delicious seeds out, which released a pleasant resinous scent.
Organized by Comitato Cittadino and the sports club of Fosso Ghiaia in cooperation with the Municipality of Ravenna.
