We are once again in our local area and excited by the Cesanese Lifestyle. This time the event is organized by the Cantina Sociale of Piglio which inaugurates its new classifications with an art exhibition by the masters Piero Ricci, Raffaella Manca and Agostino Russo.

Saturday will be the first of a series of shows that will highlight this event dedicated to Art, Wine and Food and will be hosted in the premises of the Cantina Sociale until the 6th of January.

The ‘Cesanese Lifestyle’ is made up of the three great treasures of our area: artists who can read and interpret the human soul by celebrating the deep feelings on whimsy, the wines of the producers of the Cesanese del Piglio DOCG wine that are being appreciated in Italy and abroad and quality food. This consists of a Slow Food Convivium (Banquet) of the Cesanese area and will be interpreted by chefs and restaurateurs of the Cesanese territories.

The day of December 8 starts at 5.00 pm with the inauguration and presentation of the artists and their works and displays. It continues at 17.30 with the popular music of the Hernicantus, a group that has devoted a lot of time to the rediscovery of all the traditional music of this corner of Ciociaria.

It ends at 6.30 pm with a buffet in which local products will be presented and where the wines of the Cesanese DOCG producers will be tasted. Both local products and wines will then be put on sale at the sales point of the society winery, which will have a new look as a showcase of local products for the occasion.

The head of the buffet will be the Pompeo chef from Vicolo Fatato of Piglio, a cooking show organized by Terre Sane, which cultivates ancient grains like Senatore Cappelli and produces an excellent pasta. The master of the cured meats is Fausto Minori from his Norcineria (pork meats) shop in Serrone, which offers porchetta and prosciutto cooked with herbs.

With this event the Cantina Sociale once again plays its active role being a leading promoter of the ‘Cesanese Lifestyle’. And we will be at its side.

Saturday at 5.00 pm in the Cantina Sociale of Piglio.
