Romagna is a land rich in food and products initiative. Rediscovering old traditions and typical products that have characterised the recent history of this slice of Italy, to Brisighella, in the hills of Ravenna in "Terre di Faenza”, have given rise to a series of original gourmet events, and not only.
So in April who will transit to this magnificent medieval village will be "captured" by the scents and flavours of "Good Salami trophy " and of the Sagra dei Salumi cured (15 April, Piazza Marconi).
Among the flavors and smells of wine, of oil, of the cheeses, the piadina romagnola which characterise the "Terre di Faenza" could not miss the homemade salami that deserves a prominent place in the panorama of Italian Gourmet. Hence the "Good trophy Salami"promoted every year by the" Congregation of good "Salami". The main objective of this initiative is to pass on the culture and knowledge of traditional products and art of butchers and sausage producers. This aspect is closely linked to the rediscovery and promotion of local production, like that of swine Mora romagnola, saved in extremis thanks to the passion of some breeders that have reselected the breed whose meat is very valuable.
The "Trofeo del buon Salami" is a tasty race involving hand-crafted salami makers and amateur, divided into the categories "traditional meat" and "meat from Mora romagnola”. To the jury, composed of experts from all over Italy, the difficult, and appetizing, to declare the winners.
At the same time through the streets and squares of the old town of Brisighella will come to life the Sagra dei Salumi cured, with stalls selling typical products and traditional crafts and food stalls.
