Per Corti e Cascine
Per corti e cascine has been the festival of changing agriculture for years. It is a far-reaching initiative, organized and promoted by Consorzio Agrituristico Mantovano, always eagerly awaited by visitors who want to tour our countryside. This event aims to bring together agricultural producers and consumers, in an itinerant journey to discover authentic flavors and landscape treasures that the country has to offer.
Sunday 17 May from 9 am to 7.30 pm, you can choose among 6 tours (the wine and olive oil route among the moraine hills; in the lands of the River Mincio; the City Farm; the way of the rice; the Mantuan Oltrepò; water lands) and 60 participating farms. You can visit honey farms, dairies, wineries with tasting and sale of wines, farms with medicinal, aromatic and ornamental plants, production of mustards and beers, ostrich, llama, donkey, goat and snail farms, biodynamic cultivation and old varieties of fruit and vegetables. You can take short walks, ride horses, as well as taking part in treasure hunts, typical games and demonstrations of ancient crafts.
