Gusta Minori

For the last 13 years, Minori has been at the centre of attention, not only for its wonderful scenery, its evocative monuments, but also because of the media attention about an event which directly involves one of the most important aspects of life in this community: food. It is a spectacular event, which is held every year and lasts a whole week. It relives the flavours of the very foundations of the culture of food in this town, and, in a way the entire Amalfi Coast. The event, Gusta Minori (A Taste of Minori), is a real blend of art, culture, theatre, and cuisine. It promotes local produce using music and shows with original works.

The success of previous editions of this event means that Gusta Minori, with its perfect blend of music, theatre, and local food, which recreates the historical development of the area, have been supported by local authorities. Their input has been fundamental in the continued success of this initiative; The Region of Campagna, The Province of Salerno, The Chamber of Commerce, The Council of Minori, and the Society for the Protection of the Lattari Mountains have all contributed to the success of Gusta Minori. Furthermore, the Gusta Minori Corporation has collaborated with other cultural organizations such as, The Putigniano Carneval Foundation, The Pasta of Gragnano Consortium, The National Association of Castagno, The Giffoni Film Festival.

The "City of Taste", as Minori declared itself to be on the 9th of June 2002, in the presence of Nobel prize winner Dereck Walcott, who, on that occasion was awarded honorary citizenship, is about art, folklore, scenery, a whole series of events, that can be a true theme for any vacation in this town. Visitors can feed their eyes and mind, they can discover mind blowing foods, wine, provided by people who really understand how to spoil their guests.
