On July 27th and 28th, 2024 – as usual at the end of July – in Valpelline, Aosta Valley, it is celebrated the Seupa à la Valpelenentse Festival in honor of the traditional soup made with stale white bread and fontina, the most renowned of the local cheeses.

The Vapelenentse soup was a poor recipe, but easy to prepare putting bread and fontina on top of one another, soaking them with broth, covering them with melted butter and a sparkle of cinnamon, and finally putting all in the oven.

Its origin dates back to when the cost of bread was quite high, which means it was only brought for old and sick people, and it was important to preserve and eat it also if dry.

The Valpelline Festival brings together young people and families of this small town (only 620 inhabitants!) and attracts tourists as well. The festival, a unique occasion to try this traditional dish, is enlivened by popular music and dances.
