Sagra (Festival) of Bruschetta | Casaprota

What: This Sunday sees the 50th anniversary of the festival of Bruschetta in the village of Casaprota. The feast begins with a tasting of the new season's olive oil, drizzled over traditional Bruschetta (a slice of artisan bread, simply toasted over a fireplace.) Then the fun really starts at midday, with sausages cooked on the grill, spelt soup with truffles, and fregnacce alla Sabinese, a simple pasta dish comprising mushrooms, black olives and tomatoes. Then, at 4pm, the meal continues with 'spaghetti all’Amatriciana' , one of the most well-known dishes of this part of Italy. The festival finishes with 'frittelle', little bite-sized, deep fried sweet, (or savoury) bites. Make sure you don't eat breakfast...

Accompanying the wonderful food will be a series of events, including a visit from Angelo Tombolillo at 11.30am, who is on the panel of tasters for the National olive oil Council; the reopening of an old olive oil mill; an art exhibition; music in the streets throughout the day, and entertainment for the children. Finally, there will also be a market selling typical products and local handicrafts of the Rieti area.
