"Between Art and Tasting" 2023

On Saturday 10th June 2023 the 11th edition of "Between Art and Tasting" will be held along the streets and courtyards of the characteristic historical centre of Castiglione Olona (VA).

During the evening, it will be possible to taste labels and fine wines from different regions of Italy, as well as savouring special cold meats, cheeses, jams and a variety of gastronomic proposals that can enhance any combination, all enriched by cultural and musical events and open museums. In order to be able to taste and move freely among the exhibitors, participants will be able to purchase special shoulder bags with glasses from the local Pro Loco.


  • 1 glass and 6 tokens: €15.00
  • 2 glasses and 6 tokens: €20.00
  • Refill of 3 tokens: €5.00

Available at the Pro Loco shops in Via Roma and at the Castle of Monteruzzo.

Ever since the first edition, the combination of tastings and the evocative atmosphere of the 15th century Borgo have determined the success and great appreciation of the many visitors who, in this early summer, animate the historic centre until late at night. Wine cellars will be distributed throughout the square, in the courtyards and along the surrounding alleys, commercial activities and artisan workshops will remain open, and gastronomic stands set up by the Pro Loco and local associations will ensure the preparation of tasty dishes until late at night.
