In the Piacenza plain, close to the great river Po, there is a long tradition of cherry production. The land that Giuseppe Verdi chose to lead a rural and secluded life is located in the municipality that is traditionally known for the production of these fruits: Villanova sull'Arda.

At the beginning of spring, the cherry trees are celebrated for their blossoming, offering a landscape softened by the whiteness and delicacy of the blossoms; with the month of June, the fruit arrives, offering new cause for celebration.

Dates: 1 to 4 and 9 to 11 June 2023

The festival combines the mouth-watering aspect of fruit tasting with walks through the cherry orchards, tourist trains, bike rides, ballroom dancing and food stands.
