PELLEGRINO ARTUSI is the father of Italian cuisine, the “maestro” of flames, the first one to be able to summarise all the regional recipes of Italy in one single volume “The Art of Eating Well” (1891). It is a very important work for the culinary tradition of our land, which achieved such importance that in 1931 it became one of the most read books, only second to The Betrothed (Manzoni novel) and Pinocchio.
Today, in Forlimpopoli, inside the Convent of Chiesa Dei Servi di Maria, we find Casa Artusi the first living museum of cuisine dedicated to Artusi. The site was chosen by the local community after the original house of Artusi had been demolished in 1960.
More than 3000mq house a library, a cooking school, a restaurant, and a small store, as well as an itinerary that illustrates all the history of this personality. It is open to anyone, experts and food enthusiasts alike, who wants to learn the dishes of Romagna tradition or just want to undertake a taste experience tour.
