FICO Eataly World Celebrates Leap Year Babies

Calling all those leap year babies!

FICO Eataly World in Bologna is celebrating all those born on the day that doesn’t exist, February 29. On Saturday, February 29th Fico Eataly World will feature 29 stages of food and wine, concentrating the flavors of four years into just one day. Specialties will include cannoli, arrosticini, Ascolana olives, Sicilian arancini and much more! Entrance is free and food and drink vouchers can be purchased for 5€ each. Special FICO 29 maps will be available to show which restaurants are participating.

FICO Eataly World, just outside the center of Bologna, is an amusement park for food and wine lovers. We first visited just as it was opening.  Here you can learn all about the traditions, craftsmanship and culture that make Italian food and wine some of the most popular and loved around the world! Explore the crops and visit the animals, learn how to make hand-made pasta in one of the many cooking classes available, see first-hand how local products are made, or simply stroll around the 45 trattorias, restaurants and street food kiosks tasting the best traditional Italian recipes! We can make you one promise…you won’t leave hungry! — Stephanie McClendon
