The Gola Gola Festival is a 3-day family friendly event and invites guests to engage with the community while enjoying the delicious specialties and learning about the history of the city of Piacenza in Emilia-Romagna through its cuisine. “Gola” translates to throat and this event features many workshops and tastings that will have you reaching for all the food to put in your mouth and down your gola. The festival includes a series of cooking shows, a kids’ lab, street food, a market with local food products, the filming of a talk show, as well as music, theater, films and dancing.
