Festa delle Cape in Lignano Sabbiadoro, 4 – 12 March 2017

Posted on

The “Mollusc Festival” (“Festa delle Cape”) was created in 1984 by a group of professional fishermen, and it was later carried on by the Fishermen Association A.P.S. “Al mare” of Lignano. The main purpose of this Festival is to introduce to both locals and tourists the great fish variety of our Northern Adriatic Sea. However, the most important thing about this Festival is that the entire proceeds go to charity or non-profit organizations.

The Fishermen Association A.P.S. “Al mare” has been active for 30 years, thanks to the help of the Lignano city council, and especially of the local volunteers.

Following the old recipe traditions, people who visit this Festival can enjoy a great variety of delicious fish dishes, like long molluscs (“cannolicchi”), pevarasse (clams), grilled or breaded sardines, baked sardines with onions (“sarde in saor”) and squids.

During the past editions, the proceeds of this Festival have helped many non-profit organizations, such as “AGMEN”, the “Via di Natale” (which help cancer patients), the Organ Transplant Medical Centre,  the Emergency Children “Bambini in emergenza” (children affected by cancer) and a few local families who’s children are affected by cancer.

The Festival is organized in Lignano Pineta, Piazza d’Olivo.

The Fishermen Association whish to thank the City Council and all the volunteers that have helped and will continue to help the carrying-out of this beautiful Festival.

The Streif is considered the most spectacular ski run in the world and will require the participants to tackle almost everything.




Dominik Paris, Christof Innerhofer – several Italian athletes were amongst the favourites for the Downhill. The final winner, however, was in fact a surprise. Italy’s Peter Fill pulled off the second World Cup Triumph of his career here in Kitzbühel. With a decisive performance down the entire course, the man from South Tyrol finished ahead of two other surprise runners up, as Beat Feuz and Carlo Janka didn’t feature amongst the favourite contenders either. Both Feuz from Bern and Janka from Obersaxen were not amongst the highest ranked athletes during the two training runs during the week, but still managed to edge their way to the front with strong performances.

Alba white truffle

Posted on

Spherical in shape, often slightly flattened and irregular, the truffle has a pale yellow or ochreish outer layer known as the peridium. The flesh, or gleba, is run through by many white, branching veins, and varies in colour from milk white to dark pink to brownish. Truffles vary in size. They are collected from late summer, throughout autumn and up until early winter.

This fungus only grows wild, and no cultivation techniques have been developed so far.

In the refrigerator (3-6°C) wrapped in a paper towel and stored in a sealed glass container. A fresh truffle can be kept for around a week, but should be consumed as soon as possible.

Truffles should be cleaned with a brush under cold water to remove any soil, then carefully dried and consumed after about ten minutes.

A special truffle slicer is essential to shaving the truffle into very thin slices. The finer the blade is adjusted (a few tenths of a millimetre) the more intense the fragrance.

White truffle is a seasoning and should always be eaten raw, never cooked. It is perfect sliced at the table over a fresh egg pasta like tajarin, fried eggs or fonduta (Italian fondue).
