Ferrara breads and bakers were the stars of the opening event of the Ferrara Food Festival, from today until Sunday 6 November in the heart of the Este city.
After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the Municipal Designation of Origin (DE.C.O.) of Pane ferrarese was officially presented, reviving the Ferrara bread-making tradition dating back to the 12th century, even before the PGI.
Pane ferrarese is Ferrara’s third DE.C.O. product and comes after the certification of Brazadlin, a typical traditional biscuit, and Mandurlin dal Pont, characteristic of Pontelagoscuro. The extraordinary commissioner of the Chamber of Commerce, Paolo Govoni, emphasised the special nature of the area, in a region, Emilia-Romagna, that boasts the highest number of certified products in Europe: «We must work together so that this DE.C.O. also becomes an extraordinary vehicle for promoting our agrifood excellence. Excellence that goes hand in hand with tourist appeal».
