Cultural events, food and wine, tourism and much more, to tell and bring to life the UNESCO World Heritage Hills.
Sunday 26 March 2023, the first Sunday of Spring, will mark the Regional Day for the Veneto Hills, now in its second edition.
This project was born with the precise intention of enhancing the natural, historical, cultural, sporting and food and wine heritage of our Colli Veneti, whose wealth is composed of a mosaic of unique landscapes, small villages, remote churches, ancient crafts, popular traditions and typical products.
This is an objective shared with the Primavera del Prosecco Superiore festival, whose organising committee has taken this opportunity to create an ad hoc programme, entitled Bentornata Primavera (Welcome Back Spring), which intends to further promote the Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There are many and varied proposals on the programme: in addition to the Wine Exhibitions, which opened their calendar with the 53rd Cartizze and Valdobbiadene DOCG Exhibition in Santo Stefano di Valdobbiadene, which will continue until 30 March, the public will also be able to take part in guided tours to discover the area and itineraries dedicated to the many testimonies of sacred art preserved on these slopes, thanks to the collaboration with the Beato Toniolo Institute – Le Vie dei Santi.
