Polesine Parmense

Overview

Where even salt and pepper have a story

On the right bank of the Po river, in the lowlands of Parma, lies Polesine Parmense, a hamlet of the municipality of Polesine Zibello. We are in Emilia-Romagna, a region rich in history and unusual places, where even small hamlets have a story to tell. 

Valuable exhibits in the Church of Santi Vito e Modesto include 18th-century paintings, a late Renaissance pulpit, a 16th-century baptismal font and a 19th-century organ. This Baroque-style church stands along Via Roma, while in Strada Palazzo Due Torri you can visit the Church of the Blessed Virgin of Loreto, or the Madonnina del Po. Built in 1846, it features a neo-Gothic style.

Next to the complex of the Antica Colle Pallavicina, or Pallavicino Castle, is the Museum of Prosciutto Culatello di Zibello, known around the world and with made with precious ingredients. Even the salt and pepper used for seasoning are carefully selected.

There will be plenty of opportunities for tastings. We recommend combining them with a visit to the castle, which was built in the 13th century. It boasts beautiful evidence of the past, including paintings from the 16th-18th centuries, large rooms with fireplaces and dome vaulted ceilings.
