An appointment not to be missed to Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September in Rivalta (Berchem) with Rural Festival. The 2017 Edition, as the previous three free admission, is a wonderful opportunity for young and old, who will be able to see with their own eyes, hear with their ears and tap into their own hands (in buying) what can be called "agricultural biodiversity": a multiform reality, still neglected or ignored, which is likely to remain too often an abstract idea. The Rural Festival is an event that brings together next to each other heroic farmers and ranchers who, with great effort and as much passion, every day they work to protect and save from oblivion and the ancient vegetable cultivars and ancient breeds generalization, which, in a past not so far, were widespread in our land. A work arduous, silent and patient, which often is not very profitable, yet invaluable, that of men and women over forty who wove, next to each other, the virtuous network of Rural. And the Festival, we said, is the time when all of them – that have their activities in the Emilian Apennines and Toscano – converge in Rivalta, in a unique place, as the charming park Barboj, to know the result of their work: products rich in flavor, doubly good because products obtained following the rhythm of the seasons, while respecting animal welfare, pandering and not forcing nature. Stroll to the Rural Festival, operating on both days from 10 to 19 hours, means visiting the biodiversity in their faces, in the words of these farmers and ranchers, and savor the authentic taste, so typical how again, through the many and varied goodness exposed, eventually take-home spending as they once were and original at the same time. Many genuine delicacies to try and BRIDG to buy. And for those who are still on vacation in the first weekend of September? Nothing is lost: Rural Festival doubles and echoed a layover Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September equally compelling Tuscany in Gaiole in Chianti (Siena).
