Salumificio Pedrazzoli sponsor of the twentieth edition

of the “ Festivaletteratura” di Mantova”

7-11 September 2016

Salumificio Pedrazzoli is sponsor this year of the 20th edition of the “Festivaletteratura” (Literature Festival of Mantua) which takes place from 7th to 11th September. Twenty years of Literature and culture in our City of Mantua that we want to celebrate together supporting a cultural initiative  that since 1997 is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Five days of meeting with authors, reading, guided tour, shows, concerts with artists coming from all over the world, that find themselves in squares and historical building of the city in order to live an unforgettable party atmosphere.

An event that in those year has achieved a great importance and visibility at an international level  and that for Mantova has a double value this year as it  is the Italian Capital of culture.

And 2016 is an important year also for Salumificio Pedrazzoli, who celebrates twenty years of the Organic Primavera Line, the first line of organic salami in Italy.

“This year the line PrimaVeraBio celebrates its 20 years and that’s why, being a Company strongly rooted on the territory, it was natural for us to support a prestigious event like the “Festival della Letteratura di Mantova” that this year celebrates the 20th edition- declared Elisa Pedrazzoli Responsible of the Organic Line and Export Manager of Salumificio Pedrazzoli- we have been the first in Italy to invest in the organic branch (far back  in 1996) as a natural evolution of the company vocation to reduce and to  remove where possible, the use of preservatives in products and to develop an entire organic line.

During the festival, Salumificio Pedrazzoli will be the sponsor of an event that takes place on the 8th September at 18:00 o’clock in the “ casa del Mantegna di Mantova”, entitled  “ARTUSI CONTRO ARTUSI”, an occasion to talk and comment the historical cooking of Pellegrino Artusi, in a double point of view, one more modern and one more traditional. Protagonists are, on one side Alberto Capatti, Dean of the University of Gastronomic sciences of Pollenzo, one of the bigger expert of Artusi and his “ the science in cooking and the art of eating well”, and Don Pasta on the other side, eclectic person who is a bit chef, a bit dj and a bit writer. It will be talked about tradition and innovation in cooking, about “sublime contrasts in taste”.

And “sublime contrasts of taste” will be proposed during the happy-hour offered by Salumificio Pedrazzoli at the end of the debate of the theme “the White against the Black”, that will compare the White pork and the black pork of Q+ line of pedrazzoli’s salami, in a gourmand challenge not to miss.

In 2016 Salumificio Pedrazzoli gained from Compassion World Farming (CIWF) the GOOD PIG AWARD, for our efforts to breed pigs in breeding farms which are respectful of the animal wellness.
