The traditional exhibition “The Citrus Fruits of Cannero Riviera”, which every year draws hundreds of visitors, is at its 13th edition.

For 9 days the beautiful gardens of the local villas will remain open to visitors to let them admire a wide collection of citrus plants.
To enrich the event, a varied exhibition of citrus, flower compositions, sweets and perfumes will be held at the Sala Pietro Carmine of Cannero.

Thanks to its climate and position, the village of Cannero holds an ancient tradition of growing citrus plants.
Indeed, in the various private gardens of the village there are more than 250 plants (sweet and bitter oranges, grapefruits, lemons, cedro, tangerines and clementines), some of them older than 70 years old.
