The Fusillo and pork chop Festival, in its 48th edition, takes place in Pietradefusi, near Avellino, on Friday August 9th and Saturday 10th 2019.

This food event, that occurs every second weekend of August and has been extremely successful for more than 40 years, celebrates the freshness and taste of the local handmade pasta, the scent of traditional sauces, and Pietradefusa’s pork chop, all combined with great Aglianico local wine.

Other than pasta recipes and pork chops flavors, the stands propose “traditional street food” including sausage and ham sandwiches, and the delicious parmigiana with eggplants.

Every year, the fusillo and pork chop festival attracts many visitors, and offers the perfect opportunity to discover the local history and attractions as well: the historical center of Pietradefusi, located around the Medieval Tower called “Aragonese”, the Maria SS. Annunziata baroque church, and the Franciscan Nuns museum are just some of them.
