An interactive, hands-on classical Roman agriculture evening. A visit to the last contadino family in their Roman vegetable gardens and garden nursery.
The day activities start at the garden at 3PM for all of those who want to help planting and harvesting, and continue at 6PM with a great contadino evening, including a full traditional Roman aperitivo and dinner with carne alle brace. All this accompanied by LIVE music highlighting Canzone Romane and Popolare...
