Ciuìga Festival is the typical “mountain” festival, simple yet with a rich offer. This year it celebrates its 16th anniversary.
It takes place in San Lorenzo in Banale, a picturesque village set at the foot of the Brenta Dolomites, from Thursday, November 1st to Sunday, November 4th, 2018. During the festival, visitors can enjoy tastings, folkloristic event, themed meals, markets, street artists, carriage 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 local dialect. It has a strong and intense flavor.

Banale Ciuìga is a Slow Food Presidium.
San Lorenzo in Banale is one of “the most beautiful villages of Italy” and is located in Adamello-Brenta National Park.
