We were early to arrive at the food fair in Villa Fiori park on Sunday. There were some well set up stalls offering tastings and things to buy.
We put together some delicious delights and made lunch for ourselves as well as buying some things to take home.
There wasn’t a lot of local support while we were there which was a little disappointing. Because of covid there has been nothing much happening for ages and it was nice to see something new happening. I hope it got busier later in the day.
La Corona hotel, in conjunction with Fiorenzo Consulting, has organised a food fair to be held in the garden of Villa Fiori in Ponte a Serraglio on July 4 from midday until 8.00pm. Lots of local producers will be showing their wares. It sounds like a fun event.
Come along to try local food and wine. It is excellent to see new initiatives in Bagni di Lucca.
I returned from an overnight trip to find the Lima River turned into a raging torrent. Heavy rainfall and melting snow have sent huge amounts of water down the river. The level of the water went from about 1.5metres to 4.7 last night. It has dropped a bit today but it is still rushing past my window carrying logs and other debris with it.
I went to the car park in Villa Fiori almost in time to see the huge tree that fell a few weeks ago lifted off the roof. Heavy equipment has been moved in. I’m sorry I missed the man in the cherry picker attaching ropes to the tree for the lift off.
Wouldn’t it be great to see someone buy Villa Fiori and bring it back to its former glory? Anyone out there???
It looks as if some of the other trees are being trimmed too.
