The imposing Rocca Sanvitale, built in the 14th century, is the symbol of Fontanellato.
In terms of food and wine, Fontanellato is best known for its cured meats, culatello and cooked shoulder, and tortelli, with herbs and pumpkin.
It is the traditional dessert of the province of Parma and every village in the area boasts its recipe. A delicacy with ancient origins that transmits, besides the flavor, all the atmosphere of the Christmas tradition

The fortified village of Vigoleno is one of the most important historical monuments in the Piacenza area, in Emilia Romagna. The village is still accessed through the same door that over the centuries has seen soldiers, ladies and knights pass by.
The historic villages of Lombardy perfectly preserve the food and wine traditions of the area, thanks to the expert hands of the housewives who have been able to pass on the secrets of the oldest cuisine in this region.
