Bred Bite: Emilia-Romagna

by Dejou Marano


The gray dawn kisses the azure of another day, and the changing light transforms green and gold visions into amber waves. A kaleidoscope of color and texture, Emilia-Romagna is not to be explained but best experienced first-hand.

With its storied Roman and Byzantine heritage, heartland sensibility and fertile terrain, its natural abundance has nourished more than one surreal imagination. This is the land of Fellini, Bassani and Verdi, and there is no such thing as coincidence. Emilia-Romagna is, simply put, delicious. From its lush Prosciutto di Parma and Parmigiano Reggiano, to its idealized Renaissance cities and bucolic seaside, it’s a region best appreciated one moment at a time. So open your eyes, take a deep breath, and let Emilia-Romagna draw you in.


  • Ravenna was the seat of the Orthodox Christian Byzantine government in Italy and to date houses some of the world’s most extraordinary Byzantine mosaics in the Basilica di San Vitale.
  • World renowned operatic composer Giuseppe Verdi was born in Le Roncole, 30 minutes outside of Parma.
  • The city of Ferrara serves as the setting for the 1962 Bassani novel and 1971 De Sica film adaptation of The Garden of the Finzi-Continis.
