The event exists and is incredibly successful every year thanks in part to the passion and commitment that Mayor Massimo Pissinis and Vice Mayor Luca Lisco have invested in the project since its inception.

In addition to all the events that will allow a direct meeting between the consumer and the producer, there will be guided tasting tours, exhibition spaces set up for the occasion on the places of natural interest in and around Moncrivello.

Education in nurseries and at blueberry farms, workshops to discover all the virtues and properties of the fruit in cooking and its transformation into tasty dishes, and areas set up for performances.
