Vallepietra. Ciavattone Bean Festival

During the month of November, the famous Ciavattone bean festival takes place in Vallepietra, which celebrates this iconic product which has also become a Slow Food presidium.

The bean is harvested in autumn and then left to dry in ventilated rooms to be kept throughout the winter.

During the festival it is possible to taste it in salads but also in soups such as the traditional 'sagna and beans' and with 'scacchiato', a bread that is engraved on the bottom before being cooked.

In addition to the beans, you can taste the famous Vallepietra potatoes which owe their scent to the soils and climates of the Monti Simbruini mountains.
