The city of Parma, just over an hour from Milan and located in the center of a region that is rich in history, culture and innovation, is a unique destination for all motor, opera and good food lovers.
Parma, profoundly European, has its roots in a territory where culture is the fundamental value of a good living. It is no coincidence that Parma has been elected as Italian Capital of Culture 2020, an almost dutiful recognition, given the contribution of this small town and its inhabitants, to the history of our country.
Known as the “Little Paris” for the beauty of its historic museums and palaces, Parma is located at the peak of what is called the Italian Motor Valley, an industrial district that hosts motor brands among the most famous in the world: Ferrari, Maserati , Lamborghini, Pagani, Dallara, Ducati. These companies represent worldwide excellence in research, development and production of technology for the automotive sector.
Parma: Teatro Regio and Accademia Verdiana
The energy of this land is also evident in the quality and variety of its cultural offer. Parma, in fact, is one of the world capitals of the Opera, known and celebrated for the beauty of its Teatro Regio and seat of the Accademia Verdiana, one of the most important training centers for young Italian and foreign artists. The academy is dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi, one of the most illustrious sons of his territory and one of the greatest Italian artists of the 19th century, author of unforgettable works such as Aida, Nabucco, Il Trovatore and La Traviata. The Verdi Festival and the Opera Season of Teatro Regio will merge this year into a highly attractive calendar, with unmissable events for all opera enthusiasts.
If engines and opera have been able to satisfy your passions, Emilian cuisine and Parma cuisine in particular will conquer your heart. It is in this region that the “slow food” philosophy was born and it could not have been otherwise. Delights such as Parma Ham and Parmigiano Reggiano are irreplaceable and inimitable ingredients for recipes known all over the world.
