05012 Attigliano TR, Italia (0m s.l.m.)


Attigliano is a really pleasant village for a stroll, but it becomes nothing short of irresistible in the month of September, during the days of the most anticipatedfood and wine event of the year, "Attijano vecchio de... gusto." The very name of the event encapsulates its essence: a perfect mix of history, tradition and flavors, with the dialect name of the village, "Attijano" conjugated with the "old" of culinary tradition and "taste" reigning supreme.

Good forchettes will have already pricked up their antennae, and we can hardly blame them: on this occasion, Attigliano's historic center welcomes craft beer producers, agri-food companies and local wineries that offer visitors the best of Umbrian-Latial gastronomy and local wines.

The "manfricoli" and other delicacies

If you want to enjoy a great lunch and if you want to eat like the Attiglianesi doc, you can't miss this festival and the more classic flavors it offers: manfricoli, for example, are a traditional Narni dish and a classic in Attigliano as well. Similar to tagliatelle but thicker, they are made from a dough of water and durum wheat flour, without eggs. The dough is worked on a wooden "spianatora," covered with flour, which is used to obtain a thick and consistent sheet of pasta. The pastry is cut into strips, stretched and rounded by rubbing with the hands. It is from this very movement that the name of the pasta derives, which literally means "rubbed by hand." Manfricoli are seasoned with different kinds of sauce. One of these is a sauce composed of sausage browned in a pan with olive oil and asparagus and with the addition of pepper and Umbrian pecorino cheese.

The classic menu cannot miss at this point the barbecued meat, accompanied by local red wines. Attigliano is also famous for its tagliata, which is the queen of another event dedicated to it.

At the "Attijano vecchio de... gusto" festival, there is a wide choice of beers, many of them artisanal, as well as wine tasting routes: Attigliano is a land of important wines including, to name the three denominations grown and produced in the area, Amelia Doc, Narni Igt and Umbria Igt.

The thirst for knowledge, on the other hand, will be satisfied in the Library Museum, Museum of Myths, Rites and Symbols in Attigliano Scalo, which these days opens its doors and offers guided and free tours to introduce us to the mysterious and fascinating world of esoteric sciences, religions, and ancient wisdom.
