In the Region of Liguria, La Spezia celebrates St. Joseph’s Day

Once again, from March 19th to 21st 2010, La Spezia is going to celebrate St. Joseph’s Day, patron saint of the city, with its famous town fair.

The city of La Spezia, located in the Eastern Riviera of the Region of Liguria, every year hosts thousands visitors coming from other Italian regions. Traditionally, the town fair counts about 800 typical stalls belonging to hawkers and craftsmen coming from the province of La Spezia and the neighboring Regions – Emilia Romagna and Tuscany -  and from Northern Italy.

The event was conceived in 1565 in order to develop the trade of the area. In fact, visitors will find on sale many typical products, delicacies, sweets, toys, clothes and shoes, junk jewelry and any sort of household and gift items.

From 9.00 am on March 19th, the town fair will take place for three days in Viale Mazzini, Via Don Minzioni, Viale Italia, Piazza Europa and Passeggiata Morin. Do you know the city of La Spezia? Then take a look at our new Liguria Tourist Guide, with useful maps, information and tips!
