FIERA DEL CEPPO - 21 December 2008
The Fiera del Ceppo is celebrated every year on the Saturday and Sunday before Christmas.
It was in the past known as the Fiera del Cappone (The Fair of the Capon). Merchants and farmers used to exhibit their products and merchandise for buyers in preparation for the celebrations of the upcoming Christmas.
Today, with a similar spirit of centuries ago, it is a wonderful occasion to make the purchases of the season while greeting friends and relatives in the unique atmosphere of the Lucignano town centre.
