On the other hand, if you wish to celebrate the exquisite white truffle of the Colli Bolognesi, make sure you don't miss the special edition of Tartufesta. A great widespread food festival encompassing 11 different municipalities in the area where visitors will be able to savour the typical scents and flavours of this land. Another must-attend event in this respect is the international festival Tartoflà in Savigno.
Another great opportunity to rediscover the food, culture and traditions of the Bolognese lowlands is the Sowing Festival in Bentivoglio. A day full of activities aimed at reviving ancient flavours through tastings, re-enactments, workshops and traditional markets of local products.
Finally, one of the most eagerly awaited autumn events is 2023 edition of Baccanale in Imola and environs, this year focusing on the theme of "Mediterranean", a term that encompasses all the richness and many facets of our country's culinary tradition.
