Emilia-Romagna’s ‘Gusto’ museums

Emilia-Romagna offers a wealth of flavours and delights. In terms of specialities, the region has broken the record in Italy and Europe for the number of PDO and PGI products that it has to its name, which are currently 44, in addition to the almost 400 products that are recognised as “traditional”.

Each speciality has a story to tell, the story of a tradition made up of ancient know-how and cutting-edge techniques, with the community in which these emerged as its beating heart. This is the idea behind Emilia-Romagna’s 'Gusto’ [Taste] Museums, which comprise over 20 venues located across the region, which bear witness to the extraordinary wealth of food and wine that Emilia-Romagna has to offer.

From ice cream to Cervia’s salt, to Parma’s prosciutto to eel, not to mention Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Modena’s traditional balsamic vinegar, no matter which of the taste museums you visit, you will leave having discovered a little something of Emilia-Romagna’s specialities, prized the world over.
