Festa Frawli : A Feast of Strawberries!

Sunday 14th April was a very special day, not in the sense that it was anyone’s birthday or anniversary, but special in the way that it attracts a great deal of locals, and no wonder!

Festa Frawli (translated into Strawberry Feast) is literally a feast dedicated to one of everyone’s favourite fruits. During this day long celebration one can find all sorts of things made from strawberries, including ice cream, jams, cakes, and weirdly even sushi! There was also a stall selling candles and bath soaps made from strawberries, which is a refreshing different product from the abundance of food.

My only disappointment is that I could not find the delicious strawberry wine I love.
