The former Foro Boario, located at the foot of the Parma hills, with their vineyards and the towers of Torrechiara castle, houses the Parma Ham museum, which documents this prestigious pork product using historic documents, instruments, machines, and videos. The exhibits encompass the art of making products from its origins to modern techniques, and discuss breeds of pig, the role of salt, the ancient roots of today’s delicacies, and the role of the Parma Ham Consortium in protecting product quality.

The visit ends with a taste of the incomparable sweetness of Parma Ham. The Parma Ham Museum – which also organizes workshops for schools – is part of the Food Museums Network dedicated to the typical products of the province of Parma.
