The collaboration between ALMA and the Network of ITA – Italian Trade Agency Offices in China is renewed for an international training project dedicated to Italian Cuisine.

A journey, led by ALMA Chefs and Teachers, among the excellence and iconic products of our tradition, such as Parmigiano Reggiano, Balsamic Vinegar and Prosciutto di Parma.



The aim of these masterclasses is to raise awareness of the historical, cultural and gastronomic value of this heritage and to make people understand the importance and the methods of its protection at international level.




This video explores the historical and territorial links to traditional dishes across Italy. Ranging from North to South, Fabio Amadei and Chef Carlo Maria Ricci will introduce you to three of the most iconic dishes from Bologna, Milan, and Napoli, and will familiarize you with the rich, deep connection Italians have with these dishes.

We invited Fabio Amadei and Chef Carlo Maria Ricci to explain the importance of discerning what is real Italian food between what is not, through indications such as the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and Traditional Specialty Guaranteed (TSG). Using local ingredients from the Emilia Romagna region, they demonstrate the standards by which these foods need to meet in order to be considered a PDO, PGI or TSG product, and also explain the historical value that each product carries.
