MuSa, the charcuterie museum


MuSa, the charcuterie museum

Museo della Salumeria – a unique museum for a delightful experience!

Museo della Salumeria Villani is in Castelnuovo Rangone, 15 km from Modena’s historical center (and only 8km from the Ferrari Museum in Maranello), right in the heart of Emilia’s epicurean land, where charcuterie has been produced for centuries. To walk through the doors of MuSa is to discover the flavors and colors that enchant our palates, the art, and the skills used in charcuterie making. The itinerary is a multimedia experience where modern production methods are illustrated giving an insider’s view of the production facility. A tour enriched with descriptive texts and anecdotes about single products, antique machinery, artifacts, and a display of spices and herbs used in the making of charcuterie.

A tasting of fragrant Villani charcuterie served on the Museum’s roof top terrace concludes the tour. You will taste prosciutto crudo di Parma DOP cured for 24 months, cooked ham Cinquefiori Maxi, salame Il Gentile, mortadella Bologna IGP La Santo, accompanied by a glass of local Lambrusco wine.
