Events Magnalonga: walking (and eating) for a good cause. by Annie June 4, 2012 written by Annie June 4, 2012 What’s the Magnalonga, you ask? 700 people and 8 kilometers in Treia (Macerata), under the beautiful May sunshine, with six “points of interest”. And “points of interest” here mean food. And “food” means… some seriously scrumptious stuff. Bruschette, Polenta Treiese, Maialino al forno, fava e pecorino, a little fruit salad, and some local deserts. All paired with delicious local wines. The red wine is aptly named Luvì (lit. “The wine” in Maceratese dialect). And all interspersed by some truly gorgeous scenery, a few uphill climbs (enough to make you stop feeling guilty about all the food you just ingested, and all the wine), a photography exhibit out in the middle of nowhere, and some traditional music along the way. So sorry though, we just discovered it, and you will have to wait a year for the next edition. This year it was held on May 1st. All proceeds go to Lilit, the Lega Italiana per la Lotta contro i Tumori (Italian League for the Fight Against Tumors). Not a bad idea… not a bad cause! 0 comment 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post Carciofi, Artichokes next post The local’s Capri beach… Related Posts The Miracle of the Snow September 30, 2019 Matera’s Longest Day July 29, 2019 Touching Nola’s Cultural Intangible July 1, 2016 Wash Day at il Lavatoio September 30, 2015 Mozzafiato Majesty of il Piano Grande July 10, 2015 Floral Passione Explodes in Bucchianico (part II) May 20, 2015 In Foligno, “a Galileo Universe” April 17, 2015 Burning Down the Town?
