Cittàslow in Festival 2010

“Cittàslow in Festival” is the gastronomic-musical event which matches music and taste to create unique concert evenings. During the current twelfth edition the Sala dell’Arengo inside the Town Hall building of Todi will be the stage for two meetings: 20th and 27th March, with the dinner-concert formula, where from time to time the “special guest” will be the typical gastronomy of a city belonging to the Slow Food movement.
On the 20th March on the stage there will be Tullio De Piscopo’s quintet with “Dal jazz al blues… con andamento lento”, a musical travel-concert through the multiple facets blues-jazz-pop of the artist. The famous chef Peppe Zullo will propose the art of “taste”  with the flavour of the town of Orsara, the Slow Food city guest of the evening.
Saturday 27th March the rhythms will be those of Cluster ones, the vocal group from Genoa performing a cappella, without instruments, a rock with a peculiar sound. During the evening the Slow Food city guest will be Greve in Chianti with the chef Rossella Rossi. The Festival will continue during the following weekend in other cities until the 17th April.    

On 27th and 28th March Todi will host the market of the Cittàslow and of the food farm specialties’ producers of the territory in piazza del Popolo
