This Festa was held in the grounds of the Villa San Giuseppe Località Mosse a suburb of Montefiascone one of our nearby towns perched high above the shores of the Lago di Bolsena with the most fantastic westerly views some of which I have posted before and I have also mentioned the town in recent posts such as Volo di Vino and Il Caminetto both favourite places of ours which are in Montefiascone.
The " Sagra della Salsiccia" took place over the weekend of July 24/25th and as one of our daughters and her boyfriend were staying with us at the time, we decided to go along with them plus another couple of friends on the Saturday evening to enjoy the festivities. As you can see from the photos it was held in a beautiful setting high above the lake. The atmosphere was lively with a real cross section of age groups with traditional Italian music with an accordion player as entertainment. After our sausage supper some of us even joined in with a little dancing, embarrassing for some members of our party maybe. A fun and light hearted evenings entertainment with delicious food at low cost. Yet another example of the Italians knowing how to enjoy themselves.

Unusually at this Sagra having purchased your food tickets and wine you then found yourself a table. The food tickets were collected from you and the food delivered to you at the table. No queuing for your food at this one.
Bread, Mini Salami Sausages, Pasta, Sausage Chop and Chips, then ice cream for dessert all for 15 Euros.

Music and dancing under the stars.
I have also included here an excellent video from YouTube of Montefiascone to give you more of an idea of the locality.mhanas
