Events, festivals and shows of various kinds are held throughout the year in the Collesalvetti area.
In September, for example, the annual Village Fair takes place – an event created to promote local agricultural produce, but which, over time, has included crafts and ancient trades. September is also the time for the “Settembre di…vino” (September of…wine), in the village of Nugola, with wine tastings and encounters with wine producers.
