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

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.

Buona Estate!
