From April 12th to 14th 2024, it is taking place in Ladispoli, a city in the province of Rome, the “Romanesco Artichoke Festival” reaching this year its 71st edition.

At the Romanesco Artichoke Festival the city sets up along the main streets food stands, show cooking and tastings while local restaurants offer typical menus with artichoke-based dishes.
The event ends with a firework display on Sunday night.

The historical background of the Romanesco artichoke draws back from the Etruscan people during the 4th-century BC.
For centuries this traditional Roma artichoke has been consumed by peasant families but, after the Second World War, it has spread and inhabitants started to cultivate it, mainly in the area of Ladispoli, Castellammare and Campagnano.
