Encounters with the Culatello ham and with the city of Verdi were two reasons to stage the Autumn meeting of the Registro in Busseto on Saturday September 24th.
A beautiful sun accompanied us the whole day. The 13 teams of participants were guided by the mayor of Busseto, and admired the beautiful theater and the museum in the Casa Barezzi, named after the sponsor of Verdi. The morning then ended with a superb lunch in Zibello, the homeland of the Culatello, at the well named « Trattoria La Buca », run by the heirs of the mytical « Zaira ». In the afternoon there was the visit of the library of the first pawnshop to be opened in Italy and for those who were still full of energy the visit of the wineproducer of the Lambrusco that accompanied the lunch, followed by the visit of one of the most renowned Culatello ham curers.
It was a friendly and interesting excursion for the organisation of which we must thank our member Franco Fabbri.
