1350th Agricultural Fair

From 11 December 2010 to 13 December 2010

This year sees the celebration of the 1350th edition of the Agricultural Fair: it might sound impossible but this is the exact age of this event, which started on the shores of the River Piave during the Upper Middle Ages. This area, devoted since time immemorial to sheep and cattle farming, was also positioned at the crossroads of some of the most important Roman lines of communication in Veneto and as such has always represented an ideal meeting point for the trade of local products. With this long history of tradition the fair has reached its present day with the honour of being the highest authority in the North-East for agriculture- related things, touching every single aspect concerned with or stemming from the love and care for nature and land. Hundreds of exhibitors will show agricultural and gardening machinery as well as cattle, plus modern aspects such as eco-friendly houses and organic farming, true new ways of living embraced by more and more people. In addition, the event will host Agritur, a fair dedicated to farming and horse holidays and those who wish to spend their spare time in close contact with nature. One cannot forget to mention Made in Veneto where many sources of pride for agriculture in Veneto will be presented. And as expected there will be many delicacies on show, such as cheese, bread and many more. Amongst the merits of this fair is the fact that the importance of its name is equally matched by the quality of what is on offer. The reaching of the round number 1350 coupled with the necessity to come to a better understanding of modern-day society have seen the beginning of the Santa Lucia Exhibitions Foundation, which in anticipation of the this jubilee event has brought along two truly not-to-be-missed gigs. We are referring to the concert of Nomadi on Friday 26th of November and the show of Fichi dIndiaon Saturday 27th of November, both starting at 9p.m. at the Ex Filanda.
