Local authorities, people from the world of culture and entertainment have cut the inaugural ribbon of the museum space dedicated to Felsian gastronomic excellence.
On Thursday 24 October, on the occasion of the 358th anniversary of the edict by Cardinal Farnese which regulated the production of the Mortadella, the room dedicated to the pink queen of cold cuts was inaugurated, which enriches the permanent path of the museum.
A space of the Museum of the History of Bologna, in the very central Palazzo Pepoli, is tinged with pink.
The new museum space dedicated to Mortadella Bologna IGP allows you to make an immersive experience in art and history made of knowledge and flavors of the famous salami. It houses over 15 works that tell the story of the route, from the Etruscan and ancient Roman origins to which the concept of the word “mortadella” is traced, musical and round, which heralds its delicious taste.
An experiential and interactive journey that combines art, culture, curiosity and historical testimonies such as the famous proclamation of Cardinal Farnese in 1661 which codified the production of mortadella, a true forerunner of the current Regulation for the IGP denomination certified by the European Union. In 1624 the Mortadella was the most sought after and expensive salami: 3.5 times more than ham, 9 times more than bread and 6 times more than beef and lamb!
The part dedicated to processing methods is also rich, an educational section that explains the original recipe and the production phases. The path is completed with the area dedicated to the Consortium and the communication of the product over time.
