Crafts festival in Tuscany (30/09)

The festival of crafts is held annually in one of the small towns of the Italian province of Tuscany - in the town of Montepulciano. The holiday opens on the last Friday of September and lasts for a week.

But in 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic, festival events may be cancelled.

The tradition of holding a crafts festival is quite fresh. For the first time the local society of professional craftsmen organized this event in 2007. The local authorities immediately recognized the festival as a significant event for the region. This is evidenced by the fact that officials are often present at the solemn opening of the holiday.
