The most famous ambassodor of products in South Tyrol with its longest tradition.
Once a year the tourist association is in search of a matching candidate for the role of the apple queen. The crowning takes place at the apple festival, which the region of Naz-Sciaves celebrates every second Sunday in October. As well as being unmarried, one of the most important criteria for an upcoming apple queen is its knowledge and her passion of the juicy fruit.
The beginnings of this tradition date back until the year 1993. Back then Petra Auer had been crowned the very first apple queen. Even though the tradition has remained the same, its field of action has grown.The apple queen represents our region all year through back home and also in the foreign countries, most of them German speaking.
Not only does our apple queen get many invitations, ambassadors of other products like to visit us on the Royal Festival, which takes place every year on 1st of May.
Our current apple queen is Maria Fusco. She lives in Naz along with her parents and her brother. In her freetime she loves to play football and likes listening to music. Her favourite kind of apple is Golden Delicious. Maria has been crowned the 27th apple queen on October 13th 2019 and will represent the high apple plateau of Naz-Sciaves for two years.
