It may be theorized that Sigeric, passing through the Parma area on his way back from Rome in 990 A.D., could have tasted a primeval form of Parmigiano Reggiano. From this consideration comes the idea of allowing modern pilgrims to enjoy an experiential visit dedicated to the discovery of Parmigiano Reggiano along the Francigena. The aim of the project is well explained by its title, Stop & Taste. In fact, pilgrims will have the opportunity to stop at one of the dairy farms participating in the project to taste the product, discover its characteristics, the different maturation stages and to see the variety of dairy farms scattered around the thirteen towns situated along the Via Francigena.
Have a nice break and a delicious tasting!
