“Mulino sul Po” Bread Museum | Golenale area, Ro (FE)
On the right bank of the Po River, suspended between land and water, stands Ro, the ancient village originally dominated by the Este Family which houses the Museum of Bread, a structure created to spread the culture of typical Ferrara bread through the faithful reconstruction of an ancient water mill.
A museum that still represents the history of a deep bond with the territory, that for a long time has preserved the local populations from the serious problems of Pellagra thanks to the traditional technique of grinding wheat that produced a high protein flour.
The visit includes a practical demonstration of the operation of the old mill, to which you can add a tasting of the Ferrara‘s “Coppia“, the typical local bread along with other local dishes.
The Eel Museum in Comacchio, the famous lagoon city in the heart of the Po Delta Park, stands in an old structure for marinating the eel and still represents the deep bond between these peoples and the surrounding marine territory.
The exhibition itinerary offers an overview of the entire cycle of fish processing: the “Hall of Fires” with twelve fireplaces in which today fish is still worked, the “Calata“, where boats were moored with fish destined for the marinade and the “Sala degli Aceti“, preserved in its original state with vats and barrels.
A fascinating place with ancient smells, where you can return the history of the relationship between the Italian peoples and the sea, with an excellent information point where you can also buy typical products.
