The four days are dedicated to the sweet salt of Cervia. Everything revolves around the historical performance of the salt deposit
Cervia has not forgotten its origins as a salt city. The city remembers its past and celebrates it with a event lasting several days. The festival, with exhibitions and events, is dedicated to salt. The Cervia salt marshes are also pure nature because they are home to many species of birds and the humid salt marshes are home to special plant species. As every year, the old tradition of salt storage is renewed by the fact that the salt extracted is towed by a small boat from the saltworks to the warehouse, i.e. the boat is manually towed along the canal by means of a rope. Once there, the salt is not stored but given to the spectators. Here an old tradition is kept alive, because the given away salt should bring luck and prosperity. As every year, the festival lasts several days and is characterized by delicious regional products on the markets and the many booths.
