Maggiolata in Lucignano - 2023
Updated: May 8
Lucignano is known for their Maggiolata festival, a celebration of spring and tradition typically held the last two weeks of May. People come from all over Italy to see the festival. All the floats in the parade are made out of flowers and there is endless food, music, and ongoing events.
