Many sagre are named after the product’s name which is being promoted. For instance, the Sagra della Polenta (polenta feast) and the sagra della melanzana (aubergine feast), are intended to promote polenta, the former, and aubergine, the latter.

No wonder that these food events are most likely to take place in the summertime when Italy is attended by the utmost pick of tourists. These feasts populate the entire Peninsula, with no exception.
