Easter will be a very special occasion to visit Città della Pieve, lovely Umbrian city on the border with Tuscany, full of history, art and culture, and known as the home town of Il Perugino.

The fair will host more than 50 expositors from all Italy with delicious regional food and handmade products. Starting from the most symbolic umbrian food such as truffle, oil, wine, cured meats, lentils you will be able to take a journey through Italian traditional regional products.

In particular Città della Pieve is famous for its “red gold” the saffron, which you will be able to discover with different realizations.

Inside terziere Borgo Dentro (have a look at tuscanyumbriablog to find out what are “terzieri” and “Palio of Città della Pieve”), there will be Quadri Viventi, an evocative representation of the Passion of Christ, with more than 40 characters that will show several scenes of Jesus’ life.

It is a very recommended event to participate, really impressive and emotional! But don’t be afraid of the queue, the place is not very big, so few people at a time can enter inside.
