It is one of the most significant typical products of Terni and its territory: we are talking about bread and its long tradition, which, from the 25th to the 28th May, are going to be the protagonists of "Bread Fest", the event devoted to the bakery art.

In the district of Terni there are indeed seventy-seven handcrafted and small-industry-based bakeries, which, thanks to the bakers' skills, transform the raw ingredients in a unique product. We are talking about an "unsalted" bread which has being produced in the same way for centuries, starting from the dough of the day before (the Mother dough), which is bound to rise the day after and later possibly cooked in a wood oven, so to obtain that distinctive crust friability.

Piazza della Repubblica will be animated for four days by tastings, conferences, educational laboratories and themed market-exhibitions devoted to the subject, so to know better the bread of Terni and to discover it in combination with other Umbria food specialties.
