It's the most important food and wine event held in Carloforte, a unique celebration of international fame. The main protagonist is the bluefin tuna caught locally with the traditional technique of the "Mattanza" (an ancient method of capturing shoals of tuna in large nets) and presented to the public through a tasting itinerary prepared by both local and international chefs from around the world.
The Girotonno takes place every year in June.  It is an unmissable appointment for international chefs who compete in front of a jury of experts, and for visitors who flock here to witness the extraordinary culinary event, enriched by performances by world famous performers, musicians and beautiful firework displays for the closing ceremony.
This year the event is scheduled from June 2 to June 5, 2016.
