Busseto (Emilia Romagna)

Busseto is a town in the province of Parma, in Emilia-Romagna. Its history has very ancient roots which date back to the 10th century, and for almost five hundred years it was the capital of Stato Pallavicino. In the town and the local area many sites associated with the life of Verdi can be visited, starting from Piazza Verdi, where a bronze monument dedicated to the Maestro dominates the square. Other monuments include the Verdi theatre, dating back between 1856 and 1868 and Casa Barezzi, where the composer lived with his wife Margherita Barezzi. Just outside the wall of the city, another important stop along this itinerary is at Villa Pallavicino. This beautiful Renaissance building is now home to the National Museum Giuseppe Verdi and celebrates this genius composer. The main events of every year in Busseto are the Carnival, with magnificent parades of masked people on floats throwing flowers, sweets and oranges, and the Festival Verdi, the most anticipated event of the year, taking place in October, to celebrate the birthday of the Maestro.

Recipes From Emilia Romagna

Recipes

Two specialties of Italy, panforte “strong bread” and its predecessor panpepato “peppered bread”, are not breads at all, but closer to fruitcakes featuring many spices. 
 

Recipes

It’s hard to imagine an improvement on Emilia-Romagna’s classic meat sauce, but Chef Igor Morini adds several inspirations to this traditional dish. 
 

Recipes
The odd golden rhomboids are called, spoja lorda, “dirty dough” and are yet another ode to the wonderful regionality of Italian cuisine. This pasta is little know even in other parts of Emilia-Romagna.

Our writer Cindy gives us the best recipe for homemade whole-grain 'tagliatelle,' a fresh pasta that is easier to make then it seems, from the northern and central areas of Italy

Holiday Rental

We have residency in Italy and are thinking of renting out our property in Emilia-Romagna through Airbnb and have a few questions which we hope someone may be able to help us with:-

1. How easy is the registration process through the SCIA?

Has anybody had problems caused by common reporting standards (CRS)?
