The event, now in its sixth edition, will be held in Stra, in the Riviera del Brenta, in Piazza Marconi, on Monday 1st November. Promoted by the Municipality of Stra and organized by Veneto a Tavola, in collaboration with the Slow Food Riviera del Brenta. In Piazza Marconi, the great exhibition "LEGUMI D'ITALIA" will be set up, with over 500 varieties of legumes from every Italian territory, including the Slow Food Presidia and some ancient and rare species, with the relative descriptive cards to get to know and appreciate them at better. The market exhibition will host exhibitors with food products from various regions (each also with the legumes of its territory), herbal, health and handicraft products. The free workshop for children "Getting to know legumes through play" will serve to raise awareness of young and old in the use of this food which is so important for our health and the environment. In the morning, at the Civiltà Contadina stand, there will be the "Exchange of Seeds", for all passionate growers. Legumes promote biodiversity and reduce the use of pesticides in agriculture. They are low in fat and rich in fiber, an excellent vegetable protein source, and in combination with cereals they reach a composition of essential amino acids comparable to those of meat. They are cheap, very nutritious and easy to store: WE CONSUME MORE! INFO: Municipality of Stra www. Comune. Stra. Ve. It - ​​sociocultura@comune. Stra. Ve. It Veneto at the table www. Venetoatavola.
