Bornato comes alive again with fragrances and colors with the new edition of Franciacorta in Fiore, which will take place on May 19th, 20th, and 21st, 2023, in the setting of one of the most suggestive ancient villages of this extraordinary corner of Lombardy.
All the news of Franciacorta in Fiore 2023
The first great news is that Franciacorta in Fiore 2023 will take place as tradition wants it, in the beautiful landscape, historical and cultural setting of Bornato and its castle. After a few years during which the event was extended to other municipalities in the area, the hamlet of Cazzago San Martino is once again the focal point of the festival, now at its 24th edition, ready to welcome visitors with its unique beauty.
The second news concerns this year’s theme: “The water that is not there: learning from plants at school“. There will be many moments to reflect together on this precious element for our lives, with workshops, walks, and focus that will accompany us towards a deeper knowledge of plants and their cycle in which not even a drop is wasted, and where everything has a function and responds to a precise balance.
The third news is that Franciacorta in Fiore is included in the schedule of Bergamo Brescia Capital of Culture 2023. This translates into greater involvement of the territory, which thanks to the active collaboration with Terra della Franciacorta and Fondazione Cogeme, will be the center of unmissable initiatives such as guided archaeological walks, the discovery of votive shrines, and activities included in the schedule of “Franciacorta in Fiore… and surroundings“.
