National Fragno Black Truffle Fair
Calestano (Parma)
During these seven Sundays, one of the most typical scents of autumn becomes the background aroma of an event with a rich program, including trade fairs, meetings and conferences, market exhibitions with typical products, street art and music in the villages.
Needless to say, the highlight will be the many themed menus offered by local restaurants.
