On 9 and 10 August in Picinisco, co-inciding with the Feast of S. Lorenzo, the Patron Saint , there’s the PASTORIZIA IN FESTIVAL, a festival recognised nationally for remembering “the fruits of the pasture” of this wonderful land. The focal point is Pecorino DOP from Picinisco along with many other high quality local products. The Festival also wants to let people understand all the work behind the production stages of pastoralism, from tradition to modern times, and with the “Little shepherds work” initiative it wants to teach children that this millenary work is still the basis of many local economies. And, of course, there is food, drink, music and dancing.
