The shadow of wine under the Bell Tower

This annual event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Piazza. The name of the event derives its origins from the time when wine was sold from carts in the Piazza and merchants moved round, following the shadow of the Bell Tower, to keep the wine cool.
