The chestnut festival is held on the second Sunday in October - the one after the grape festival. The aim is to assess the chestnut, a typical local product.
One kind of chestnut, the “donnasc”, according to etymological interpretations of the toponymy, seems to have give rise to the name of the town itself.
At the core of the event is the competition between the chestnut roasters who compete for the castagna d’oro (the golden chestnut).
