1 • Explore Parma city center

In recent years, even in a country that loves tradition like Italy, there has been a small revolution in the culinary field with the arrival of street food.

Street food after having taken hold in Italy developing in a true specialized economic sector, thanks to globalization, the migrations between the countries of the north and south, the east and west of the world, is no longer a necessity but a true trend where culinary traditions meet.

Among the street food could not miss the pizza! In fact it was born just like street food: the real Neapolitan pizza, in fact, as to be that it must remain soft enough to be “folded like a wallet” and carried around.

From street food that moves and reaches you everywhere on four wheels, with the food trucks now widespread, to walking food that you can get in a pub or a local gastronomy of which Parma is rich.
