The ethnographic museum on the production of Felino Salami has been set up inside the cellars of the Castle of Felino, an old manor house dating back to the year 890, at Felino in the Province of Parma.
The museum itinerary is split into five sections. It begins with a historical analysis of the relationship between the local territory and salami, including the history of the black pig. It continues in the second part dedicated to gastronomy with testimonies of the use of salami in Parma. The third room is the part on butchery and home production. The fourth section deals with the technology of production, from its origins to the latest developments, and the marketing of the product. The last part is dedicated to a video on the museum and a collection of historical curiosities, including the origin of the iconography of Sant’Antonio Abate, the patron saint of domestic animals, farmers and butchers. Finally, there is a museum shop.
