The Food Museums form a natural complement to the Food and Wine Trails and further enrich areas with important historical and artistic features: the Museum of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is housed in the historical XIX century cheese plant next to the grounds of the fortified Castle of the Meli-Lupi family, in an area rich in castles and associations with Maestro Giuseppe Verdi.
The Museum of Typical Cured Meat Products is located in Langhirano in the former cattle market, an area strongly characterised by the processing and maturing of pork meat products, the Museum of Salame is located in the Castle of Felino.
The Tomato Museum is housed in Giarola, in the municipality of Collecchio, in a monumental Benedictine agricultural court, dedicated from time immemorial to agricultural production, cattle breeding and, more recently, to the industrial processing of tomatoes.
This court situated next to the Taro river is the seat of the Regional Fluvial Park dedicated to the river and hosts also the Pasta Museum.
