FICO EATALY WORLD - THE LARGEST AGRI-FOOD PARK IN THE WORLD
IN BOLOGNA. FREE ENTRY
WE AIM AT TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT THE EXCELLENCE OF ITALIAN FOOD AND WINES.
We tell the story of Italian agri-food culture combining local tradition, high-quality food, and the expertise of those who have always been working in the agri-food chains. All of this under one roof.
FICO - Fabbrica Italiana Contadina, the Italian Farming Factory. A place where values are produced, even before produce and products. It is Italian, from the seed to its final shape. And farming, meant as hands-on, fully connected to the soil.
Because the poetry originates there, precisely, in the uniqueness of our territory and our climate, and in the skillful hands of those who know how to take care, transform and cook, better than anyone else in the world, the production of mother nature.
FICO Eataly World is a training ground for a sensorial and educational experience about food and its biodiversity, where the wonders of the Italian food and wine industry are presented and narrated from their birth inside Mother Earth to their final destination on a dish and in a glass. We welcome hundreds of small and medium-sized Italian high-quality businesses that will showcase live their manufacturing and crafting arts. We shall be the echo of their tales, crafts, passion, ingenuity.
