Avasinis (Udine) is the village of raspberries and bilberries in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The festival has its roots in the past, when women used to spend days and days in the near mountains reaping raspberries and bilberries for the most important industrial producers of syrups in Italy.
Even Gabriele d’Annunzio loved the syrup made of raspberries from the mountains that surround Avasinis. In the quarters and courtyards of the village you can taste these fresh, just reaped soft fruits, or enjoy their flavour in bread, cakes and special grappa (grape-based pomace brandy).
It’s also possible to sample typical plates from Avasinis, such as delicious frico, radicchio with garlic or various tarts, taking pleasure in open-air concerts and performances for adults and kids.
