The ‘nozza’ is a typical dessert from the area that has its roots in popular culture. It is a delicious cone-shaped wafer with a taste of anise and rosolio, which can be enjoyed on its own or filled with whipped cream. Once served during weddings (hence the name, which in Italian recalls the word ‘wedding’), the ‘nozza’ is prepared today by local housewives according to the old recipe. During the festival, stalls are set up in the streets of Calcinaia centre, near the Lungarni (riversides).
