Festa delle Cape Mollusc Festival 30th Edition
The "Festa delle Cape" mollusc festival was created in 1984 on the initiative of a group of professional fisherman and then taken forward by the A.P.S "Al mare" Association in Lignano. It aims to promote the great fish variety found in our waters, the Northern Adriatic Sea, to residents and tourists. However, the most important aspect is that the proceeds go to charity.
The Fishermen's Association (A.P.S.) “Al mare” has been active for 30 years, thanks to the help of the Lignano city council, and local volunteers in particular.
Following old culinary traditions, the festival serves a great variety of delicious fish dishes, like long molluscs (“cannolicchi”), pevarasse (clams), grilled or breaded sardines, baked sardines with onions (“sarde in saor”), squid and many other local specialities.
Past editions of the festival have helped “AGMEN”, the “Via di Natale” (which helps cancer patients), the Organ Transplant Medical Centre, the “Bambini in emergenza” Association (Children in need - children affected by cancer) and a few local businesses.
The festival will take place on the 7, 8, 14 and 15 March 2015 in Piazza Marcello d’Olivo, Lignano Pineta.
