Mostra del Fungo Autinnale

Follonica – The third weekend in  November

The Mostra del Fungo Autunnale is less of a festival and more of a ‘get to know your mushrooms better’ event.

Follonica‘s best mushrooms are on sale throughout the weekend. There are photograph galleries and a special section where master growers demonstrate how to grow mushrooms.

Guest speakers will also teach you how to recognise different types of mushrooms. This might come in handy if you decide to take up on the Maremman tradition of mushroom picking, which is heaps of fun and something most Maremmani love to do in winter.

There’s also plenty of mushroom-themed dishes. It mightn’t sound like much, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in Follonica on this weekend.
