But there is something new! There are two appointments for each day of the Festival: at 7.00 pm will perform the Chefs of the Strada del Vino e dei Sapori del Friuli Venezia Giulia who will present some of the recipes proposed in the gourmet area and at 8.00 pm TV celebrities linked to the world of food & beverage will take the stage.
