Celebration of autumn fruits and Sowing time

Museum of Rural Culture - Via Sammarina 35

Bentivoglio (BO)

On Sunday October 27 the Museum of Rural Culture in Bentivoglio hosts an event dedicated to the flavours and traditions of the Bolognese countryside. In particular this October edition celebrates the time of the rural year when farming life centered on sowing and the harvesting of the autumn fruits.

Taking place at 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 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 traditional sowing will be reenacted with ancient machinery and tools.

The event also features workshops for children and adults, exhibitions and shows.

Date: the event will be held on Oct 27, 2019

Event timetable: to be defined
