20* Festival della Castagna - Chestnut Harvesting: Traditional or Mechanical?

Location: Plazza 2 km before Soglio

18.10.2024 13:45

Machines can make work in the chestnut grove much easier. We talk to two chestnut farmers who work their groves manually or mechanically.

Nowadays, various machines are used to work in the chestnut grove: leaf blowers, harvesters, bio-trimmers for shredding the chestnut husks, etc. Sometimes there can be a contradiction between the work of the chestnut growers and what visitors hope to find in the forest. We visit two castanicoltori: Renato Tomassini harvests chestnuts in the traditional way, Plinio Andreoli harvests them mechanically with a harvester."

Meeting point At 13.45 at the Plazza postbus stop, 2 km from Soglio (on the Promontogno-Soglio line). There is no car park in Plazza. Please come on foot or by post bus.
