Discover Salami

The Italian tradition of pigmeat preservation through salting and seasoning dates back to the time of pre-Romanesque civilizations. The pig at that time was essentially slaughtered for ham for the purpose of being exported to ancient Greece, but it was in the Middle Ages that art of processing and preserving pork developed. In those years was born the professional figure of “Pizzicarolo” or “Pizzicagnolo”, which today we will call pork butcher, but at the beginning it was only a nomadic worker who made available his art for meat slaughtering and processing. He was mainly a seasonal worker because the pig was slaughtered once a year and his meat had to feed the whole family during the winter.

After sowing the ham, the other parts were preserved for sausage or grinding the lean parts and fat parts mixing together with salt and spices.. Sausages were thus obtained as a fresh product and sausages as a seasoned product. Obviously this art has refined with the passing of time and has developed in a different way depending on the place.

Salami has evolved over the centuries become a true specialty. Italian sauces are distinguished by the type of grinding (fine, medium or large) for the spices that make up the recipe (garlic, chili pepper, fennel seeds, pepper and wine) and the type of seasoning and smoking.
