Parco Naturale Regionale dell'Antola

Products: Rice Pasta and Cereals

The Tastes of Antola Park

The richness of the territory reflects on the abundance in local products. Some products are widespread in the whole region, like pandolce genovese; others are characteristic of the inland, since they are linked to the picking of spontaneous "fruit" like the king bolete, or to the confectionery industry based on the use of chestnut flours. Moreover, there are some exclusive products like chestnut quadrelli and extra jam made with violet petals.
