GUIDED VISIT of Casa Artusi
Discover the truest Italian gastronomic culture, the one developed in the home of Italian people based on the richest traditional flavours and fresh and genuine seasonal products. Discover it in Casa Artusi, a charming place where the taste of culture meets the culture of taste.
Forlimpopoli is the home town of Pellegrino Artusi, acknowledged father of Italian cookery, author of the famous ‘Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well’ cookbook. The very first Italian national cookbook, it is a collection of 790 recipes (each with a number!): the approach is that of a teaching manual (“I practise using this manual,” wrote Artusi, “one simply needs to know how to hold a ladle”), and recipes include considerations and short stories which make Artusi’s manual a masterpiece of wit and wisdom. The book is still printed since its first publication in 1891 and it has been translated into English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian and Japanese.
Check point in front of the Castle (Rocca) in the town centre of Forlimpopoli (150 meters walk from Casa Artusi) or at Casa Artusi's BOOKSHOP via A. Costa 25 Forlimpopoli.
