Close to the seaside town of Marina di Massa is the slightly inland town of Montignoso (more mountain views, but also peek-a-boo sea views.) We went to a chestnut festival there on Sunday. There were numerous foods made with chestnuts ranging from gelato to fritters. Even so the most popular way to eat them was roasted. It felt very much like fall with a bit of chill in the air.
