At the Ciuìga Festival, at its 22nd edition, 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.

What is the Ciuìga?
is a tasty salami made with turnips giving a unique flavor, different from any other salumi. It 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.
Banale Ciuìga is a Slow Food Presidium.
