Mercatino Natalizio

MASSA MARTANATALE

Nei due weekend dal 7 al 10 dicembre e dal 16 al 17 dicembre Massa Martana, il borgo umbro adagiato ai piedi dei Monti Martani, torna ad animarsi con il tradizionale mercatino natalizio. Protagonisti i prodotti tipici dell’artigianato e dell’enogastronomia, musica itinerante e numerose iniziative per famiglie e bambini, che introdurranno festosamente all’atmosfera del Natale.


IL MERCATINO - Le tipiche casette in legno che trasformeranno il centro storico di uno dei borghi più belli d’Italia ospiteranno tutti i giorni, dalle ore 10 alle 20, numerosi espositori con un’ampia varietà di strenne e di idee regalo fra cui i prodotti di artigianato artistico in ceramica e legno d'olivo, hobbistica (ricamo, uncinetto, découpage, decori), maglieria e bigiotteria fatte a mano, giocattoli in legno e opere di pittori e scultori del territorio. Ma, soprattutto, il mercatino natalizio offrirà l’occasione per riscoprire i

sapori tipici della terra umbra: vino, olio, salumi e l’immancabile Nociata, un originale torrone bianco morbido e dolce tipico della zona del massetano, confezionato in foglie di alloro.


GLI SPETTACOLI - Luci, suoni, colori e sapori creeranno una atmosfera natalizia calda e accogliente che sarà arricchita da spettacoli e attività dedicate ai bambini e alle famiglie: zampognari, musica live e artisti allieteranno il soggiorno o la visita del borgo.
