The "Palariso", the modern and technological building that has hosted the Rice Fair for many years, covers about 90.000 mq and lodges many wine and food contests, many stands for the rice-selling and for tasting several plates realized by many exhibitors. Furthermore, you can take part to guided tours which are aimed to the promotion of the "Strada del Riso" (Street of the rice) lying among rice fields and old historical boroughs full of traditions, local rice-mill and typical products from rice.
