Festa della Zucca

Autumn is a time for festivals in our area. Many villages celebrate the season with festivals honouring the local produce. I recently attended the Festa della Zucca (pumpkin festival) in Piegaia, not far from Bagni di Lucca.

Festa della ZuccaThere were lots of people there enjoying the many stalls selling interesting things to do with pumpkins and other delights.

There were pumpkins in all shapes and sizes.

Delicious food was available. We chose penne with pumpkin and creme brûlée with pumpkin.

  1. Did I see a pumpkin pizza? It all looks yummy. We will be in Lucca for two weeks in June. Can’t wait to explore this area. Thanks for the great posts.
