Ciuìga Festival – San Lorenzo in Banale e Dorsino
29 October-1 November 2022. Delicious salami. Slow Food presidium.
Ciuìga Festival is the typical “mountain” festival, simple yet with a rich offer.
Its 21st edition is taking place in San Lorenzo Dorsino, a picturesque village set at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, from October 29th to November 1st 2022.
During the festival, visitors can enjoy folkloristic events, themed meals, markets, street artists, guided tours, shows for children, music bands, folkloristic groups, dinners in the courtyards, cellars, streets, and restaurants.
The star of the festival is Ciuìga, a tasty salami with a unique flavor, different from any other salumi. This delicacy is made with turnips and is produced exclusively in the Banale plateau. It was invented in the second half of the 19th century by a butcher from San Lorenzo, Palmo Donati, who used only humble ingredients to create his recipe: pork meat and white turnips.
Its small and elongated shape resembles that of a pine cone, “ciuìga” in the local dialect. It has a strong and intense flavor.
