Also this year in Marradi (FI) there will be the traditional “Chestnut Festival” now in its 52nd edition. The days will be busy Sunday 04/11/18 and 25 of October. As every year there will be food stalls that will offer our visitors the traditional delicacies of the famous fruit “The brown Marradi” such as tortelli brown, the chestnut cake, chestnut cake, jams chestnut, the marron glacé, the “burned” (roasted chestnuts), etc.

The afternoons will be entertained by music shows and variety with the presence of children’s attractions, as well as a show of illusionism.
