Parma has announced a series of events that will be taking place this year as Italy celebrates “Year of Italian food”. The main event is the City of Gastronomy Festival, an event that aims to offer a ‘taste experience’ and express the creativity of the region.
“The event is the result of a reflection and of action of local operators who want to add value to the local produce and the culture of food. Food is not just a product to be tasted but also represents community,” said Cristiano Casa, Councillor of the Municipality of Parma.
Parma was declared Creative City of Gastronomy UNESCO in 2015 and in 2020 will be the Italian Capital of Culture.
