FICO, acronym for Fabbrica Italiana Contadina (Italian Peasant Factory) and literally fig or cool! (Italian expression), is THE WORLD’S LARGEST AGRI-FOOD PARK in beautiful Bologna (Emilia-Romagna)
100.000 square meters of authentic Italian agri-food related stuff including :
- shops and marketplace
- 40 eating points
- 40 farming factories
- 6 multimedia carousels
- 6 classrooms
- theater and cinema
- 2 hectares of fields and stables
- 1 congress center
FICO is HUGE and the best way to explore it is to rent at the entrance the FICO bike, a Bianchi tricycle provided with two shopping baskets.
If you are planning to visit Bologna, the capital of the Emilia Romagna region, don’t forget to plan a whole day at FICO.
