Overview

“Il DESCO – Sapori e saperi in mostra” is the most awaited market-exhibition on local products of the year, designed for those who love high-quality products, traditions, and the culture connected to food. 

The exhibition usually takes place during the first two weekends of December, inside the historic and charming location of Real Collegio, in Lucca’s historical centre. The Desco is a real journey into taste, totally devoted to the excellent food and wine of the territory of Lucca, Tuscany, and other Italian regions. It boasts a wide and varied range of products, symbols of tradition and authenticity to their territory of origin. The products are selected through the highest standards of quality and authenticity. It is a unique occasion to dive into the world of the local food and wine culture and to live this experience like a star! 

Moreover, this unmissable opportunity is part of the busy calendar of events named “A Magical Christmas in Lucca”, which will enrich the city during this magical time of the year with many activities over the weekends and on public holidays.
