Traditional feasts (the Palio in Siena), celebrations of the local patron saint (Festa del Redentore); events organized by long-standing charitable organizations (the Purgatory lunch in Gradoli), festivals staged by political groups (the First of May, Festa de L’Unità, or the Lega festivals), or even the replica of a 19th Century political banquet staged for the 150th jubilee of the Italian Unification provide important occasions for communities. Diverse as they are, they are all characterized by commensality and sharing of local food.
