Pastrignocchi and Cuculo Festival

From 1st to 4th June in Cetona: 10° edition of "Pastrignocchi and Cuculo Festival" The Pastrignocchi and the Cuculo are two typical products from Cetona. Pastrignocchi are a typical kind of pasta, while the cuculo is a biscuit made with simple ingredients, especially sold in the low Siena province to delight the appetite of the tired agricultural workers. Its name comes from the fact that the biscuit was used almost exclusively for the afternoon snack of the harvesters, when the stifling heat of July decreased and the cuckoo began to emit its characteristic "coo-coo". The traditional festival dedicated to these local specialties usually takes place, in the first days of June, and is organized by the Association Corsa con le Brocche [Jugs’ Race] in collaboration with the local Amateur Sports Association, and sponsored by the Municipality of Cetona. During the festival, in addition to the opening of the food stands…
