Now in its ninth edition, the Arroscia Valley Expo is an event dedicated to the excellence of the territory held every year in Pieve di Teco at the end of August. Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of the Riviere di Liguria, the Region of Liguria, the Province of Imperia and the Municipality of Pieve di Teco, it sees the participation of numerous traders and artisans from the Ligurian hinterland.
To visit the Expo it is possible to stay in the Ligurian hinterland or, alternatively, sea lovers can consider our accommodation in Diano Marina, very close to the sea and just over 30 minutes' drive from Pieve di Teco.
The Arroscia Valley Expo involves all the main local businesses, craftsmen and traders. Numerous stands are dedicated to typical local and farm to fork products, especially honey, yoghurt, oil, lavender, garlic, preserves, cheeses and wines. In addition to agricultural products, there are food and wine stands, as well as antiques, handicrafts, plants and flowers, clothing, equipment and services, especially local associations that promote walking and trekking in the Ligurian Alps.
In addition to visiting the stands, it is worth attending the shows and taking part in the cooking shows.
The Expo is centred in the municipality of Pieve di Teco, but also involves all the neighbouring municipalities of the Arroscia Valley. In fact, it was possible to participate in excursions and guided tours to the main sites of interest in the municipalities of Rezzo, Montegrosso Pian Latte, Mendatica and the hamlets of Lavina, Cenova and Monesi di Triora.
The main stands are located in Pieve di Teco, under the 15th century porticoes, the town's historical legacy, where it is also possible to buy food for a lunch of local specialities.
The Arroscia Valley Expo is an excellent opportunity to set out to discover the village of Pieve di Teco, the heart of the Arroscia Valley and famous for its antiques and contemporary art.
