A culinary journey between land and sea

The Mussel farming

The refinement of a unique flavour directly from the hands and commitment of the growers

An art or a trade? The work of mussel farming in the territory of the Po River and its Delta is an activity that is still handed down from father to son and which allows in our lagoons and in our pockets to be able to grow precious seafood such as mussels, clams and oysters, giving to the countless traditional local dishes an authentic and true flavor of a product still grown manually.

Fish market

The catch directly on the tables

The fish caught in our sea every day through our marineries, is grouped in large centers called fish markets, which provide the distribution directly during the day, making us find unique delicacies directly on our tables. Great importance is given to environmental protection by establishing a priori the ideal fish coverage based on the period, thus avoiding never overloading the ecosystem of our sea.
