To be held from 6 to 22 September 2013, the XVI edition of the Parma Ham Festival, a major event in and around Parma to get to know and try the very best ham from Parma as well as appreciating the touristic and cultural beauties of the places.

“Finestre Aperte” (Open Doors) remains the most exciting moment of the festival thanks to its attractive power on visitors, whether they are experts or just enthusiasts.
