Food museums reopen
The Food Museums turn 20
The Food Museums reopen in March, celebrating their 20th anniversary this year.
In 20 years, as many as 306,317 visitors have flocked to the Food Museums to learn about the history, culture and traditions behind the products that have made Parma and its territory famous and contributed to the creation of the 'Food valley', now known throughout the world. It is no coincidence, in fact, that Parma has been awarded the title of "Creative City for Gastronomy" by Unesco.
The eight museums exhibit a total of 4,215 objects, each of which has a story just waiting to be heard. One of this year's great novelties, and closing the circuit, will be the opening of the Fragno Truffle Museum in the evocative underground rooms of the Calestano Town Hall in the autumn.
Like every March, the museums reopen their doors and offer children and young people tailor-made experiences every weekend. "MUSEUMS IN TECHNICOLOR" is the leitmotif of the workshops that will begin on Saturday 4 March. The important thing is to be armed with plenty of colouring and taking inspiration from the museums' products, children and their families will be involved in new activities, always free of charge.
