9 days of tastings, appointments and novelties for one of the most popular gastronomic events
Cremona – The ‘Nougat Festival’ returns. From Saturday 12 to Sunday 20 November 2022 the city of the Torrazzo will be completely dressed in nougat.
The historic Festa del Torrone, now in its 15th edition organised by SGP Grandi Eventi, renews its appointment in Cremona and will bring to the streets of the city’s historical centre many long-awaited novelties and appointments that have now become traditional, including the historical re-enactment of the marriage between Bianca Maria Visconti and Francesco Sforza, the long-awaited final show characterised by evocative settings with spectacular choreographies and scenic effects that will be staged in Piazza del Comune, tastings, guided tours, but not only that, themed workshops for young and old will be organised during the days of the event.
Among the unmissable events that have always accompanied the Nougat Festival will be the now traditional awards, including the Premio Bontà (Goodness Award) established to give recognition for dedicating one’s time and life to helping others, and the prestigious Torrone d’oro (Golden Nougat) prize that will be awarded to those who represent Cremona and its territory in Italy and around the world, as well as the Ambassador of Taste award.
This year’s edition will also celebrate the city’s patron saint on 13 November, Saint Omobono, protector of merchants and tailors.
It will be a not-to-be-missed occasion for all gluttons and lovers of tradition, giving the city of Cremona an important opportunity to celebrate its characteristic dessert. As every year, there will be nougat producers from all over the country and they will make the city’s iconic sweet taste in different declinations all to be discovered.
