Of notoriously American origin, the tomato has found fertile soil in the province of Parma, as early as the second half of the XIX century. And this territory was not limited to cultivation, but it was also oriented towards transformation. So much that today tomato products are exported all over the world, as well as the technology for the canning industry. The tomato is therefore inserted into the museum itinerary that enhances the typical products of the Parma area.

The museum is located inside the Corte di Giarola, in the municipality of Collecchio, in a medieval agri-food transformation centre. Home to a tomato paste industry for the first sixty years of the XIX century, today it is also home to the Taro Regional River Park.
