The Cuisine School in the heart of the Food Valley
ALMA’s headquarters are situated in Colorno, just outside Parma, on the banks of the River Po, in the heart of what is known as our country's Food Valley. This is a strategic location and in line with the School's mission:
- the Food Valley is indeed the area with the highest concentration of Italy's major food producers, products such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Parma ham, gastronomic excellences which make Italian-made products famous all over the world;
- The city of Parma received the UNESCO title of “Creative City of Gastronomy” in 2015, and was later appointed as the “Capital of Culture 2020” in 2018.
The classrooms and laboratories at our Cookery school are located in the prestigious Reggia Ducale, a historic palace within an elegant 18 th century garden, with all the latest equipment and technology, the ideal place for training our students.
