La Bruna (Umbria): Festa Della Battitura

June 7 - June 25


Italians love a reason to party and this is evident in their festas celebrating the most obscure of objects, like in the small town Pierantonio, where they celebrate the Battitura. This is the farming machine that cuts and collects hay. You can find these machines in mid to late June moving through golden shimmering fields. They honor this machine for 10 days every June. A menu filled with pasta, grilled meats, and a local dish called Torta al Testo, and a different Italian band performing night attracts the whole town to gather together. The whole night young children run around and enjoy “zucchero filato,” cotton candy, and old couples line dance. If you want to experience an authentic festa, this event captures the true essence of Italy’s party culture.
