Butchers for Children, Really

Cecchini It’s really the Festa Mondiale dei Macellai held in Panzano. But was subtitled as above because you “donate” 10 Euro to get into the festival and the money goes to Ospedale Pediatrico Meyer for kids. The festival, I think, was started by Dario Cecchini who was out and about the day we visited. He also is the owner of the Antica Macelleria Cecchini. The small all-you-can-eat festival is held on the street in front of his shop. You’d better like pork!

We took a bus from Florence to Panzano (about 30 km, 45 minutes). The trip was organized by FlorenceForFun. It was a small group of about 17 people which was nice.
