The first edition of the Festival delle Scoperte (“Festival of Discoveries”) will be held at the Meleto Castle in Gaiole in Chianti on the weekend of 24th and 25th March, with a rich program of events such as conferences, workshops, exhibitions and shows.

Professors, scientists, intellectuals and artists will gather here to talk about the wonders of discovery to enthusiasts, professionals, families, adults and children of all ages.
