In the beautiful fraction of Villa San Nicola of Ortona, this festival is dedicated to the historical reenactment of the old threshing tradition.
Besides its maritime history, Ortona boasts a strong agricultural tradition. In the past, the peasant families of Ortona were devoted to cultivating and harvesting wheat which used to be the essential food to support their households. Nevertheless, threshing was also an important convivial occasion to gather and celebrate the harvest, by singing, dancing and sharing food.
Every year, people of Ortona commit to reenact this old tradition by having three days of festival where people can also enjoy a series of typical dishes, good music and live concerts.
