With Salento cuisine festival we inaugurate Summer 2021 and start again from Salento! We rediscover the desire to be together and celebrate the arrival of summer with the excellent Salento cuisine appreciated all over the world.

It will be a Festival dedicated precisely to the desire to spend the warm Roman evenings together but in complete safety, at the center of which there will be the Salento and Apulian cuisine, with its various delicacies and delicious dishes. Bombette, Panzerotti, Puccia, Orecchiette, Burrata, Pasticciotti, Grilled Octopus… in short, all the best of Salento and Puglia in the heart of the capital, cooked instantly by expert chefs who will set up outdoor kitchens in the square of Campo Boario (Ex Slaughterhouse of Testaccio) but not only. All will be accompanied by performances of folk dances, taranta and Pizzica, a leisure area with table football and table tennis.

And for football fans, screens will be available to follow the European final. The City of the Other Economy will host for the first time, directly from Galatina (the town where the pasticciotto was born) the cooks of Sapori del Salento who will offer a wide selection of typical Salento dishes, while from Alberobello the “bracisti of Quelli della Bombetta” will arrive. With their fiery grills and red-hot Bombette while from… The Apulian Panzerotti fried at the moment!

It will be possible to taste the good Primitivo di Manduria or a glass of Negroamaro under the stars, or if you prefer, excellent organic craft beer accompanied by a cup of tiramisu in multiple flavors and variations. Finally, artisans and intellectual workers who will exhibit their creative works will be the backdrop.

Free admission you only pay for what you eat, parking is available for up to 200 spaces in the internal area of ​​Campo Boario, otherwise on Lungotevere Testaccio or along Via di Monte Testaccio. In the village specially created for the Festival, tables and chairs will be placed, common services all in compliance with current regulations on the prevention and safety of covid-19 contagion. Over 500 seats will be set up at a safe distance and the steward team assisted with the Civil Protection operators will take care of the collection of waste and sanitizing the tables and trays. All visitors, in line at the cash desks or to collect the dishes or in the common areas, must wear masks on their faces and maintain the minimum interpersonal distance of 1 meter.

In the area of ​​the former Campo Boario of the City of the Other Economy throughout the summer, so even in the absence of our culinary events, there will always be something that will allow you to spend the day and especially the evening in complete tranquility, at the open area or under the stars, in the company of good food offered by Collettivo Gastronomico Testaccio.

The Collective was born between 2020 and 2021 with the aim of recovering the wonderful catering and exhibition spaces within the area of ​​the Ex Mattatoio di Testaccio, in the heart of Rome. The cuisine it offers is agricultural and rural, based on tradition but without following it slavishly, going to take up forgotten recipes and using unusual raw materials. The dishes will have a strong root in Roman history: therefore not only the use of the fifth quarter but of all those ingredients typical of the peasant and pastoral past of the Roman countryside.

Carefully selected large quantities of natural wines, an open-air cocktail bar and a wide range of tapas for the afternoon and aperitif times. Musical activities, artistic performances and exhibitions will be the outline in which to live throughout 2021. Its goal is to bring Rome and its citizens back to the center of all, recovering, before it’s too late, a place rich in history and tales like the Slaughterhouse in Rome.

The Testaccio Popular Music School will offer free musical performances of different genres and for all tastes, while the local cultural associations will organize fun moments of entertainment and leisure for all ages. On the Facebook page of La Città dell’Altra Economia it is possible to follow the daily program and all the appointments scheduled for the summer.
