Like many towns in Italy, Bagni di Lucca was keen to help the Italian earthquake victims. A long table dinner took over the main street in La Villa recently and 417 enthusiastic participants joined in.
Local restaurants stepped up to provide delicious food. Trattroria Borghesi made the pasta all’Amatriciana, Da Mamo provided the roast meats, Circolo dei Forestieri contributed the contorni (side dishes) and Gelateria Primavera served fruit salad and gelato.
The evening was a great success and close to € 8,000 was raised. The money will go to a project for restoration.
Well done Bagni di Lucca!
I was not there as I don’t arrive in Bagni di Lucca until late next week, so I have no photos to share with you. Take a look at Francis Pettitt’s blog to see some photos and more on the event.
Brava gente di Bagni di Lucca e dintorni!! Great seeing people come together for this very worthwhile cause. Amatrice will need all the help it can get.
I think it was great. I hope there is another while I am there.

Great to see so many people supporting this very worthy event.
It is an excellent initiative. I wish I had been part of it.
Yes, I would have loved to be there too!
Great initiative! Bagni di Lucca has always a big heart.
It seems the event was well organised and the food was excellent.
Great news! We raised over 2,000 euro at a dinner event in the village of Sorana, Pescia. I love that our neighbours are getting involved. 🙂
Well done! I’m sure these events are happening all over Italy.
It was a great event, it was so nice to see all the familiar faces there, the bank staff, the shop keepers, neighbours it was an event that will be talked about for some time! and the food was very good!
Thanks for your comment. I wish I had been there.
Heartwarming to see people do what they can to help the earthquake devastation. Brava!!
Loud cheers for their effort!
