, south-east of Modena, aims to raise awareness, enhance, and pass on the ancient art of cured meats. Three floors are entirely dedicated to one of the productions that has indelibly marked Italy’s gastronomic culture down the centuries and it is now, more than ever, a global point of excellence.

Run by the same family for five generations

The Salumeria Museum opened in 2013 in the historic headquarters of the Villani company, which has been run by the same family for five generations and three centuries of Italian history. "The MuSa was created to present the company and its proud family character – explains CEO Giuseppe Villani - but the main driving force was the desire to celebrate a unique production district. The idea being an exhibition that would tell not only the history of our company, but also the history of the entire region.”

Cured meats’ tastings with a flourish

The tour is divided into ten stages, with the final flourish being a tasting of fine Villani cured meats accompanied by Lambrusco wine in the purest Emilian tradition. And as a delicious final touch, the cured meats are served on the museum's covered terrace.
