Emilia Romagna. A land of a thousand excellences.
At the Heart of The Italian Food and Motor Valley
A vast plain furrowed by the slow waters of the great Po river, Italy’s longest. An immense, fertile garden landscaped by man’s skilful hands and ancient traditions that favoured the creation and development of excellent food products. The old Via Emilia, built by the Romans, connects the iconic cities as true beating hearts of the Food Valley: Piacenza, Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, Forlì, Cesena and Rimini. Territories and peoples that created products with premium taste which made Made in Italy food appreciated all over the world.
