Tuscan bread has played a significant role in the history and culture of the region.

As a staple food, its preparation and consumption are closely tied to the social organization and daily life of the people. In Rimbocchi, bread-making has been a cherished tradition for generations, and the festival was founded in 2002 to celebrate this heritage.

The bread-making process relies on local spring water and high-quality flour, ensuring a superior product that continues to be enjoyed by the community and visitors alike.

Today, the family-run Panificio Rimbocchi bakery carries on the tradition, producing bread for the region and beyond.
