MUSA - Charcuterie Museum by Villani in Castelnuovo Rangone

The Villani Museo della Salumeria, Italy’s first museum dedicated to the history and production of charcuterie. MuSa is located in the historic headquarters of the Villani firm (est. 1886), the oldest producer of salami and other cured and processed meats in Emilia-Romagna.

Located at the historical site of the Villani Salumi, the MUSA is proposed as a space for communication, training and dissemination of the art of charcuterie.

To walk through the doors of MuSa is to discover the flavors and colors that enchant our palates and senses. The visit offers an itinerary between the past and present and is illustrated with videos that explain modern production methods – giving an insider’s view of the production facility, descriptive texts and anecdotes about single products, antique machinery, artifacts, and a display of spices and herbs used in the making of charcuterie.

In its rooms the visitor is guided in a multimedia and multi-sensory tour to discover the history, technique and passion of men and women who have given birth to a gastronomic heritage appreciated all over the world.
