The Local Products of Colli di Bergamo Park

Thanks to its various geomorphological and climatic features, Colli di Bergamo Park offers several and unexpected local products, as demonstrated by a recent study carried out by the Association Slow Food-Legambiente which has presented Atlante dei prodotti tipici dei Parchi Italiani and by the survey carried out by the University of Milan within "The Pattern" Life Project. These research activities highlighted the presence of companies complying with the environmental sustainability parameters established by the check-list prepared by Wagenigen University in Holland. Environmental sustainability is established according to parameters for the analysis of the environmental quality of the production process (biomass flow, non-renewable resources flow, cultivation calendars, etc.) and for the analysis of the real environmental impact of the companies on the territory (soil exploitation, energy resources used, rotation, intermixed crops, soil conditioning, phytosanitary measures).

The excellent products that have passed the above-mentioned tests are:

  • Organic honey and by-products (Propolis, essential oils, pollen, royal jelly)
  • Small organic fruits
  • Salami obtained from Bergamasca sheep
  • Plain-leaved Endive of Bergamo
  • Valcalepio red and white wine DOC
  • Brut Wine classic method
  • Extra-virgin olive oil produced with organic olives
