Friday 23rd sees the return of the Merchants’ Festival, organised by the Bientina Natural Shopping Centre Association, which takes place in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II and in the streets of the historic centre.

The title of the festival, ‘The Village of Miracles’, will transform the centre of Bientina into an open-air theatre. The streets will be invaded by stilt-walkers, fire-breathers, minotaurs and many other creautures from faraway countries.

In the centre, one can still appreciate the remains of the medieval walls, towers and Mastio, now housing the library and municipal archives, and the Museum of Ancient History of the Territory with a section dedicated to the Etruscan period. The local economy is essentially based on commercial activities, handicrafts, antiques (one of the most traditional markets in Tuscany takes place here every month), small industry, particularly in the mechanics and manufacturing sectors, with the production of furniture, furnishing components, clothing, footwear and leather processing.
