Via Francigena

It is possible to speculate that at the time of his return journey from Rome in 990 A.D., Sigeric, passing through the Parma area, might have tasted a primeval wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano. From this consideration came the idea of allowing modern pilgrims an experiential type of visit dedicated to the discovery of Parmigiano Reggiano along the Francigena. Already from the title, Stop & Taste, the nature and intent of this project are clear: pilgrims are invited to stop at participating facilities and taste the product, discover its characteristics, its different maturations and touch the variety of production facilities that scatter the thirteen Parma municipalities involved along the Via Francigena.

All that remains is for us to wish you a good stop and a great tasting!
