apericena in agri


in Calvarina

Baita Calvarina, an agritourism in Calvarina, a hill near Arzignano, this Summer 2020 created some super duper events for Thursday nights: the Apericene in Agri.

The agritourism is well appreciated in our area because the food is good and there’s a lot of space, inside and outside. 

It’s perfect for our large family lunches. 

In the Summer evenings Baita Calvarina is a lovely location, lit by the last rays of the sun and with a temperature that is always a couple of degrees lower than in town.

In July this year (2020) the owners invented the “Apericena in agri“, evenings with focacce and boards of cold cuts and cheese, to share with family and friends while drinking something chilly in this hot Summer.

The apericene are held on Thursdays, and that day that is the only thing that is offered in the menu, if I’m not mistaken.

The event is quite successful because

1. up there temperatures are much better

2. focacce are delicious. 

the focacce

The focacce, with slow rising, are of 4 different tastes with interesting ingredients (like honey, onion, nuts), plus two simple with tomato and parma ham. 

My favorite was with caramelized onion. 

They were so inviting that I forgot to photograph them, I didn’t think about it at all, only these two (after I had already eaten a bit of the first two). 

To match the focacce they offer some artisan beers, made in a brewery from Vicenza.

Or white wine, for the aficionados like my father.


The location

Location and set up are also super.

Location does not need explanation, it’s on a hill surrounded by nature.

For the Summer due (or thanks to) Covid-19 they set some large tables in the garden.

There’s a lot of space and social distance is guaranteed.

I don’t know if these events will continue for the rest of the Summer or were only in July (and first week of August).

I hope they will continue, because I want to go back (I would go right now, if it wasn’t Friday night when I’m writing).

It’s Going to be Perfect!
