From October 11th to 13th the second edition of the Ostia Cuttlefish Festival will be staged, held at the Camping Park Roma Capitol in Ostia Antica.
The cuttlefish festival
After the great success of the first edition, which registered over 20 thousand presences, this year it replicates itself in the same location with many initiatives and innovations that will further enrich the offer both from the gastronomic point of view, both for what concerns the show and the fun. The main character of the festival, of course, will be the cuttlefish that populates the waters of the Roman coast just in autumn. Also this year there will be a menu entirely dedicated to her, with the possibility of tasting it in different variations.
Among the objectives of the event – organized by the Ostia Ristora association – is the will to make the typical features of the sea of Ostia better known and to relaunch the lidense territory with an event that combines good cuisine with music and sport. As in the first edition, in fact, during the three days, numerous musical bands will alternate on the stage of the festival, while the sports fields of the Roma Capitol campsite will be available to the little ones for training and mini-tournaments.
Furthermore, a series of debates and in-depth studies on the properties of cuttlefish, on the rediscovery of the lidense sea and, of course, on the many aspects of healthy Mediterranean cuisine, are planned.
The novelties of the 2019 edition
Among the novelties of the 2019 edition, moreover, an international education will also take place during the event, promoted always by Ostia Ristora, with a workshop in collaboration with some tour operators from Ukraine, Norway and Albania who will be guests of the event. The workshop will discuss the tourist potential of Ostia and the entire coast of Rome and the tour operators will be accompanied to the symbolic sites of the lidense district and its hinterland. The contribution of the Ostia In Bici association will also be invaluable. During the event it will organize a cycling tour that will branch out among other things through the Pasolini path and the bike path that leads up to the Camping Park Roma Capitol.

The Ostia Ristora association was founded in 2018 by the union of a group of Ostia catering operators. Its main objective is the re-launch of the lidense area, through its natural beauties, its tourist attractions but also through cooking and catering.
