Fascino senza tempo

Ricetto di Candelo, Taverna del Ricetto (11th September 2024, 19:00)

An unforgettable experience in one of Europe’s most magical medieval villages, featuring incredibly talented musicians from the USA, Bulgaria, Italy, and Belgium: violinists Lora Markova and Pietro Genova Gaia, violist Cassia Drake, and cellist Stéphanie Huang.

The Ricetto di Candelo is a fortified structure which dates back to the late Middle Age (XIII – XIV century) and arose through the initiative of the local peasants for the purpose of preserving and defending the community’s most precious assets, and as a temporary shelter in times of war or danger (the term Ricetto derives from the Latin word “receptum” – shelter, refuge). Awarded as one of the “100 most beautiful villages in Italy” (ANCI), it is also one of the best preserved in Europe.

A typical Piedmontese dinner is also available to the public, in the charming hall of the Taverna del Ricetto, with a special tasting menu dedicated to the Oropa Music Festival.
