Taste of salt
Salt, once known as "white gold", is part of Cervia's tradition and current economy. Every year the city becomes the hospitable and pleasant scene of the "Taste of Salt", a rich event where salt is the absolute star of a show presented through and enriched by exhibitions, meetings, shows, wine and food and special dishes, laboratories, guided tours and street markets.
The main attraction will be, as usual, the traditional event that celebrates "L'Armesa de Sel" (the collection of salt): still nowadays the workers carry the collected salt on little boats from the salt works to the storehouses. The event is attended by many visitors, who get the salt offered as a symbol of luck and prosperity.
