The appointment with Mercato Europeo returns, which in Padua becomes Europe In Prato: four days dedicated to tastes, flavors and traditions of exhibitors from all over the world in Prato della Valle from 28 April to 1 May.

Itinerant trade with the sale of objects and food and wine specialties offered by operators from many European states as well as from many Italian regions.

During the event you can taste and buy food specialties such as cured meats, cheeses, chocolates, desserts and ready meals from the gastronomy of each country as well as discovering the most characteristic artefacts of the ethnic and folkloric craftsmanship of the countries present.

Street food, restaurants, drinks, crafts, household and wellness items, at the European Market you will find everything and experience a fantastic festive atmosphere.

Since ancient times this open space has had economic and recreational functions.

In Roman times it was the site of a vast theatre, the Zairo, traces of whose foundations were found in the canal surrounding Memmia Island, and of a circus for horse racing.

In the Middle Ages it was instead the site of fairs, jousts, public festivals and competitions, such as the “sedioli” races, a type of typically Paduan chariot or the “castello d’amore”, which ended with the conquest of beautiful girls to marry from part of young men who came from all over the Veneto.
