In our town of Casalmaggiore, from 14th to 17th September 2017, the Pumpkin Festival  returns a Zucca. “Queen” of the event and the territory is the Pumpkin declined in different ways, from kitchen to direct sale, passing through some collateral events, among these Inventio, where the Pumpkin becomes thinking and being free from ideas.

This year, reinvented with a particularly original format dedicated to the greedy ones but also to the children and not least to the business world.

At the kitchen you will be offered the renowned pumpkin tortelli, called Blisgòn, in different versions, in addition to other local dishes. Possibility to dine every evening and on Saturdays and Sundays even for lunch.

Among the initiatives of the show, on Saturdays and Sundays, there will be also the peasant market, in Piazza Garibaldi, and the craftsmen’s bijou market in Vicolo Chiozzi.

Pumpkin is traditionally a well known product of the Casalmaggiore area, in gastronomic terms. But it is also an allegorical figure of the head. From a Pumpkin eat to a thinking “pumpkin”: here is the decisive step that allows to frame the identity and intentions of “Inventio”. The new event of exposure, sharing and realization of ideas and innovations for the future open to all people. The theme of this first edition of Inventio will be industry 4.0, a change that, through robots and data collection, will bring major transformations into businesses and how to conceive work. During the days of the event, it will be possible to participate in meetings, stands and workshops to know and understand the future of the work and entrepreneur world of our territory.
