F.I.C.O. in Bologna

Fabbrica Italiana Contadina: Bologna will become the home of Italian food farming

FREE ENTRANCE from Monday to Sunday, from 10.00 to 24.00.

After months of great anticipation, from November 2017 it is finally possible to visit F.I.CO., the Italian Farming Factory, destined to become the largest center in the world to celebrate the importance and richness of Italian agro-food.

F.I.CO. in numbers:

  • 20,000 meters of biodiversity
  • 2 whole hectares dedicated to fields and stables
  • 6 giostre multimediali didattiche
  • 40 companies and consortia, excellence in the agri-food chain
  • 45 refreshment places including bistros, starred restaurants and street food kiosks
  • Go shopping among 9,000 square meters of Made in Italy excellence
  • 4,000 square meters of congress center

One of the objectives of the project is to have nearly 6 million visitors per year. Significant numbers, which attest to how much Bologna believes in this dream and what F.I.CO. could represent for Italy.

Why Bologna

Without forgetting that it is one of the symbolic cities of Italian food and wine,the capital of a region, Emilia Romagna, famous throughout the world for its knowledge and flavors,well represented by noble products such as Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Mortadella and Bolognese ragù, Parma Ham and Parmigiano Reggiano, just to name a few.
