Nuestro recorrido por las callecitas de Piacenza continúa entre charlas que se ven interrumpidas por los sorprendentes palacios, que surgen en cada una de las esquinas de la ciudad dándole el nombre, alrededor del ’700, de “città dei palazzi”.

De pronto, llegó a nuestra mesa uno de los platos más típicos de Bologna: Tagliatelle ala bolognese (taglia… que? Bueno, algo parecido a los tallarines. Qué cantidad de nombres de pasta tienen en Italia por dios).

Lo encontramos en Parma, a pocos kilómetros de la ciudad. Era nuestro tercer día viajando en Italia, y el segundo que nos pegábamos un buen madrugón. Pero el que algo quiere, algo le cuesta, y hay sitios que solo puedes visitar a ciertas horas del día, como por ejemplo la fábrica donde producen el auténtico queso parmesano, o como se dice en Italia, Parmigiano Reggiano.

No sabíamos lo que nos esperaba hasta pasar por los dos arcos que se encuentran a un lateral del teatro. Por cada paso que dábamos aquel marco iba ampliándose y ampliándose, hasta quedarse fuera de nuestro campo de visión, mostrándonos la animada plaza del pueblo natal de Giuseppe Verdi, el famoso compositor italiano.

Durante casi dos semanas he estado recorriendo la región Emilia Romagna con mis compañeros de Minube Ignacio y Adri, grandes viajeros los dos, con los cuales he pasado unos momentos inolvidables.

In the small town of Forlimpopoli, I learned how to make pasta from scratch from a group of Italian ladies called the “Mariette”; volunteers who are passionate about cooking homemade food and teaching their traditional techniques.

Parma strangely does not figure prominently in many popular travel guidebooks. Which explains why the city was completely devoid of tourists when I visited, even at the major landmarks. While it lacks the attractions of the “big three” of Venice, Florence, and Rome, Parma is a microcosm of everything beautiful about Italy and definitely worth a day trip.

Ferrara é uma das joias da Emília Romagna, a mesma região que abriga a famosa Bolonha. A cidade é sede de uma importante universidade, e por isso suas ruas são sempre cheias de movimento, eventos culturais, bons restaurantes e comércio interessante, além, claro, de muita arte e história.

While there are many cities in Italy I’d recommend visiting, this is one where I’d also recommend living. After just spending a day here I was ready to pack my bags and start apartment hunting. It’s quaint, stylish, and sophisticated yet also very welcoming. (And how could it not be, it’s the home of fashion icon Max Mara!)

Na minha viagem para explorar a Emilia-Romagna na Itália, Bolonha foi escohida como cidade base. A razão é bem simples: a cidade fica na área central da Emilia-Romagna, tem uma malha de trens super eficiente e é principal hub para várias cidades no país.

Emilia-Romagna is an Italian region filled with amazing sights, beautiful buildings, the kindest people and mouth-watering food. Much of the country’s most notable exports come from Emilia-Romagna, including ravioli, lasagne, balsamic vinegar, many popular Italian cheeses and, last but never least, Ferrari cars.

Everything was grinning in the hues of ripeness. That seems to be what Modena, and her surrounding swathes of farmlands and cottages, does best: nurturing her world-famous produces to their optimum maturity, before exhibiting them only in their brightest and most flavoursome. And where the populace of Modena, Emilia-Romagna and, indeed, far beyond Italy have come to swoon over the likes of balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano Reggiano – parmesan cheese – is a modest, neoclassically-fenced indoor market by the name of Mercato Albinelli.

For anyone willing to step off the tourist trail, Bologna offers everything you could possibly want from a trip to Italy. Located in Northern Italy between Milan, Cinque Terre, Venice and Florence, Bologna jumps with local flavors, customs and pride, and does so many things well that it is hard to comprehend how it has been consistently overlooked by travelers for so long.

It’s a beautiful, quaint city brimming with life. Interspersed with the fashion, food, and interesting shops are well-maintained palazzos and churches and narrow streets that ends in beautiful courtyards.

Nossa viagem romântica (eu e maridex!), gourmet e aventureira a Emilia Romagna na Itália aconteceu em maio de 2013. Época perfeita: manga curta e casaco à noite, nem muito quente, nem muito frio.

I met lots of friendly faces on my visit to Bologna for Blogville last summer. It’s one of the highlights of travel. To learn about other cultures, hear what people have to say, and to connect over shared interests – often the travel itself. (And food – let’s not forget the food.)
