Salt Festival

Salt Festival

From 6th September, four days fully dedicated to Cervia's sweet salt. The core of the event is the historical recalling of salt delivering to sheds that is "L'Armessa de Sel" in the local dialect. Sapore di Sale - Salty Taste recalls the past of Cervia with street market stalls, exhibitions, shows, tasting sessions, and meetings.

Sapore di Sale - rimessa del sale - foto Giorgio Carloni - 800-opt80Although nowadays salt is one of the most common ingredients on our table, in the past it used to be so rare and precious that people used to call it 'white gold' because it was fundamental for the preservation of food.
Therefore it is easy to imagine how Cervia was linked with this product and with its over 800 ha of saltpans.

The purpose of this event is to remember and celebrate Cervia's past and 'dedicate' a celebration to the precious salt, re-enacting the past traditions and proposing various themed attractions: exhibitions, historical re-enactment of the traditional salt delivery, music and performances.
