The Pizza Festival of Marciano della Chiana takes place every year, since 1991, in the first three weeks of the month of August. The event is organized in the terrace behind the village gym and besides tasting exquisite and renowned Chianina meat of the finest quality and typical dishes of the area you will be able to choose among over 50 types of appetizing handmade pizza. The fragrant pizza dough, like all the other dishes, is daily prepared by the village housewives who, in memory of the old peasant tradition, find themselves cooking together.
The Festival is organized by the Comitato Festeggiamenti (Celebration committee) which is actually composed of volunteers, inhabitants of the small village, who devoting their own free time to the organization make the gastronomic and cultural events possible. During the week after 15th of August (Ferragosto), which coincides with the festivities in honor of the SS. Crocifisso, together with the Pizza Festival there are also religious, sport and artistic events. And after a good pizza or a pasta dish of “maccheroni al sugo” it will be nice to stroll along the small lanes of Marciano della Chiana, under the mighty Castle and Tower.
