The 16th edition of Ciccioli in Piasa (“Ciccioli in the Square”) takes place on Sunday, March 11, 2018, in San Martino in Rio, in the Province of Reggio Emilia.
For the entire day, the best local “norcini” (pork butchers) compete with each other to see their ciccioli elected as the best in Emilia Romagna.

In addition to the ciccioli contest, several food stands – the “Cholesterol Spa” – offer plenty of tasty local delicacies, such as gnocco fritto, polenta, porchetta, mulled wine, hot chocolate, and many more.
Plus, a market with over 100 stalls sells the best local craft and gastronomy products.

Ciccioli in Piasa’s program also includes cultural events: the Ancient trades exhibition, guided tours of the Rocca Estense, the Museum of Agriculture, and the beautiful Automobile Museum.
And then: street artists, lottery, shops open all day, and many surprises for children.
