The taste of culture
THE ROW material
The “mandorla”(Italian for almond) is maybe the most commonly used raw material in Agrigento. From their picking up to the way local people treat these exquisites nuts, almonds can be seen as a symbol of the local Peasant tradition and a delicious link to our past.
Traditional Food: Our Excellences
The Almond Blossom Fest is proud to present an Exhibition/Food Fair Hosted at the “Palacongressi” Conference Centre. The exhibition will focus on Sicilian traditional food: you will have the chance to get to know more about the production of Almonds, taste exquisite typical Sicilian Patisserie and learn more about our SlowFood networks.
Myths, Legends and Storytellers
Come discover our ancient troubadour tradition: when TV, Radio, and the Internet didn’t exist, people gathered on the streets and in the public squares to hear the enchanting verses and rhymes of a singing poet: the Storyteller.
