Bronzone was a comic character in the very first summer play which was mounted by the Teatro Povero in summer 1967: The Heroine of Monticchiello (L’Eroina di Monticchiello).
Bronzone was a simple man of the people, with a decisive manner and simple values. The dishes you can eat in his Tavern have the same character, maintaining the solid confidence of traditional Val d’Orcia cooking.
The Tavern is run directly by the Teatro Povero co-operative: it is open for lunch and dinner during holiday weekends, and in the period when the summer show is being mounted. The Tavern can also be hired for social events: weddings, christenings, parties. For information on opening times and hirings, contact us at our office number: (+39) 0578 75 51 18; or online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
