Emilia-Romagna offers glorious countryside, plenty of historic architecture and local cuisine renowned across the rest of Italy. The region is crossed by The Via Emilia: a dead-straight road laid down by the Romans in 187 BC that splits the province in two along its east-west axis, dividing the Apennine mountains in the south from the flat fields of the northern plain, the Pianura Padana.
Emilia-Romagna has a just reputation for producing the richest, most lavish food in Italy, with its famous specialities of Parmesan cheese (parmigiano-reggiano), egg pasta, Parma ham (generically known as prosciutto di Parma) and balsamic vinegar.
We try to describe the essence of Italy one experience at a time. Experiences that represent daily rituals of nourishment. Nourishment in its broadest sense. Emotional and spiritual, aesthetic and visual, tactile and olfactory. Nourishing experiences that can be “satisfying” in a nearly religious way.
