ASTI - FRAZIONE CASTIGLIONE
FRITTATA IN PASSEGGIATA
The preparation of omelettes after Easter is the traditional end of “Cantè j’euv”, the collection of eggs accompanied by Easter songs, a tradition still alive in Castiglione d’Asti during the Lent period. The afternoon begins either with a “long” walk in the woods towards Portacomaro or with a “short” one accompanied by herbalists explaining the properties of medicinal herbs. At 5pm afternoon snack with omelettes made with wild herbs, spring onions and potatoes. Folk music is also on schedule.
