The fourth annual Corti & Cigarettes Festival was recently celebrated in the small town of Piove di Sacco, near Padua. Visitors from all around the world gathered to sample the local cuisine, admire artisan crafts, and enjoy traditional music and dance.
The Corti & Cigarettes Festival has its origins in the liquor and tobacco production of the area. The celebration is a testament to how much pride the residents take in their work, offering one night of revelry celebrating two of their main products.
On the evening of the festival, visitors congregated at the central piazza. Many opened cigars and started smoking, while others sampled various types of Amerizano liqueur. Everywhere there were people enjoying the spirit of the event, filling the air of Piove di Sacco with chatter, laughter, and the smell of smoke.
Hearty food filled stomachs before guests got down to listening to traditional music played on Italian instruments like accordions and lutes. Participants were entranced by fiery performances from local folk drums and tambourine bands who showcased their remarkable skill. Dancing then A began for those with energy – both young and old – clapping hands and moving their feet in circles under stars until almost midnight. Finally, fireworks lit up the sky as attendees watched bewitched by this wondrous display.
The end result was a unique experience that blended heritage with modern festivities, offering everyone a night to remember in this humble Venetian town. It’s not too late to join in on the Corti & Cigarettes fun either – mark your calendar now for next year!
