The June celebrations in Governolo in the province of Mantua mean great food and live music 

By Wednesday, 25 May 2022 09:45

In Governolo, a charming village in the province of Mantua, everything is ready for the most anticipated event of the year.

From Thursday 9 to Monday 13 June, and again from Saturday 18 to Wednesday 22 June, great food, music and various shows will be the order of the day.

This is a wonderful opportunity to discover the best Mantuan wines, to be enjoyed with many typical local delicacies, including ostrich in many forms, from appetizers to desserts. 

Tasting lunches, live bands and orchestras

On Sunday 12 and Sunday 19 June at 12.30, two tasting lunches are scheduled by reservation and every day there will be entertainment in the square from 9.15 pm. Ranging from 70s/80s disco music to classical favourites the best bands and orchestras in the area will be performing on stage.

The town stands where two rivers meet

Due to its unique geographical position at the confluence of two rivers, Governolo was once the gateway for navigation from Mantua to the Adriatic Sea. The ancient hydraulic basin, designed by Bertazzolo, recently renovated and fully illuminated, together with the nearby Matildic Tower, are just two of the town’s main tourist attractions.

Fascinating riverine industrial archaeology

In the same area there is the Mincio River Museum with many models, exhibition panels and videos illustrating centuries of local history and hydraulic archaeology. On the path along the former riverbed visitors can admire the mechanical devices that used to regulate the river level and allow boats to overcome the difference in height of the waters between the Mincio and the Po rivers. Lovers of outdoor walks will enjoy strolling along the cycle paths on the banks of the two rivers, losing themselves in the serene and tranquil countryside.
