BARBECUE AT CALA MASCIOLA
Where: Cala Masciola
12:30am – 10pm
FUOCO E FIAMME
The Piazza shines with fakirs and fire-eaters, the embers of a large brazier create flames of light. A true ritual among giants, grills and masters of the circus arts, meat as the main ingredient of the dinner, music echoes through the narrow streets of the Borgo and accompanies all guests on this journey into the warmth of Puglia.

Perfumes and Alchemy of Puglia
On Saturday 16th of September, there will be a true multisensory experience at the Bar del Portico.
Piero Semeraro, barman of the Bar del Portico, will host Marco Palmitessa from Alchemico Bar e Cose in Monopoli. Alongside them, the products of Aquapulia will help to describe Puglia, through an original selection of fragrances.
The evening main characters will be the Muma Gin – a distillate with a Mediterranean spirit rising from the pureness of the sea and in perfect balance with the natural ingredients – and Aquapulia, a project started in Puglia and born from the desire to create unique fragrances inspired by the places and landscapes of this land. The four cocktails of the evening will take on the name of the perfumes created by Aquapulia and will reinterpret the soul of our territory in a sensory journey between taste and smell. Memories that rise up from the sea, the warmth of a summer sunset, the wind among the centuries-old olive trees: the fragrances of Puglia will amplify the emotional impact of every sip.
The evening will begin at 6.30pm with cocktail tasting in a pleasant atmosphere between a variety of scents and flavours. For those who want to continue the evening, there is then a dinner at Il Porticato, a restaurant in the Corte del Borgo.
The Bar del Portico is also open for guests who are not staying at Borgo Egnazia every day from 10am to 1am.
puglia e bollicine
The moment when the sun goes down at Borgo Egnazia is always a special one. The limestone is lit by the soft shades of the pink sunset, the arches of Il Porticato frame pieces of sky and bougainvillea beautiful like paintings, the background lounge music that blends with the clinking of stem glasses. In this special atmosphere, the event “Puglia e Bollicine” returns with the good wine and the cuisine of Il Porticato that offers dishes in perfect harmony between taste and wellbeing.
7:30pm – 10pm
Ancient cooking methods and the festive atmosphere of a dinner in the Piazza. Carefully selected meat cuts prepared by slow cooking, together with grilled seasonal vegetables and hot embers will be the main focus of this evening. Local cuisine mixed with new influences, reinterpreted in a Puglian style, will delight young and old. All together will gather in the Piazza del Borgo among the lights of the luminarie and live Italian music.
From 7:30 pm
CENA IN PIAZZA

October 28th: “LA ZUCCA”
The pumpkin is one of the symbols of autumn: delicious and unfailing in the recipes that warm up the kitchens with the first cold weather, fascinating and fun in the traditions that make it the protagonist of carvings and decorations full of fantasy and stories.
For one night only, the Piazza del Borgo is tinged with orange and welcomes the amusing sound of nursery rhymes intertwined with tales from the past: welcome to “La festa del Borgo – La Zucca”.
