34th Festival of the Culatello di Zibello
Three decades of history, hundreds of volunteers, tens of months of preparations. Wanting to summarize it in two lines,
the party of Culatello di Zibello could be defined as a glorious story, full of successes, the one that accompanies the important local event.
It is the story of men and women who, without asking for anything in return, have long labored for the good of the country.
It's also the story of a product, with an almost irreverent name, that brought the city of Zibello into the world.
