“Cibò So Good” – 3 day Food Festival

Every month Bologna offers a great food festival (we can plan a visit!). February is the time for Cibò that is the Emilia-Romagna Excellence Festival

Emilia-Romagna is the Italian region with the highest number of PDO and PGI products. There are 43 of them, spread across the region. For those who are not familiar with these acronyms, PDO stands for Protected Designation of Origin, and PGI indicates the Protected Geographical Indication. Not only are these appellations  a guarantee of quality, they also help local agricultural activities in preserving old traditions. The best known products from Emilia-Romagna, in Italy and in the world, are without doubt Parmigiano Reggiano and Parma Ham, Modena and Reggio-Emilia Traditional Balsamic Vinegars, and cold cuts like Mortadella Bologna and Coppa Piacentina.


Then, there are traditional regional products such as the juicy Vignola cherries or the pears. A classic countryside dish consists of eating pears along with quite well-seasoned cheeses…heavenly!
