Activities in Lucca -- November 10-20?

Have rented an apartment in Lucca and am seeking any suggestions on events that are happening in Lucca or nearby in Tuscany during these dates 2011. So far my google of the web has not turned up any festivals or other events. What were your favorite Lucca activities and why?

Il Desco, an annual flavours of Lucca event starts on the 19th at Real Collegio, behind San Freddiano church. This is a free event every weekend until mid December. You will find two floors of the college filled with local oil producers, usually of the new years harvest (that week or so), cheese, salami and ham from local producers from the Garfagnana. There is usually plenty of tasting opportunities from producers and a small pay wine tasting as well. Its not huge event but it is generally pretty good. Often local restaurants have promotions at the same time.

i forgot,, the last of the "Aperitivo" concerts is on Sunday morning 13th at the Ridotto del Teatro del Giglio. I have not been to one of these, they are small recitals at 11.30, just before lunch. They are for a small fee and run in conjunction with Buonamico winery (excellent wines) and the Boccherini musical institute which usually have excellent musicians.
