Just as the name Parma fills readers of Stendhal and Proust with nostalgia, that of Parmesan will make gourmets drool and Mannerist art lovers swoon. On the border of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna, this city combines art, literature, music and good food. Parma, ruled by the Farnese family for 200 years, was the birthplace and home of countless artists (including conductor Arturo Toscanini), provides a unique blend of elegant architecture and a genteel art de vivre.
