Overview

Discover the Parmigiano-Reggiano, the classic and prestigious Italian cheese known, appreciated, and copied throughout the world for its unique characteristics. This cheese has ancient origins - as a matter of fact, a cheese from the Parma region with characteristics very similar to those of the current Parmigiano-Reggiano was already famous during Roman times.

Collecting material for the museum took place in all 5 provinces where Parmigiano-Reggiano is produced. The objects on display can be placed in a time frame between the second half of the Nineteenth Century and the first half of the Twentieth Century. The organization of the exhibition recalls an historic cheese factory of the Meli-Lupi family. In fact, all objects necessary for the transformation of milk are present in the oldest part of the building. Learn about the maturing process, marketing and sales, as well as information about use of the cheese in gastronomy and its history.

The food museums of the province of Parma celebrate the delicious and abundant food products of the region – Parmesan cheese, pasta, canned tomatoes, wine, Salami, Prosciutto di Parma. An experience for all senses and tastes, unforgettable and unique.
