A taste of italy
Conducting business with Elettric 80 is not just about technology and finance.
It is about developing partnerships and understanding how we and our customers have evolved and how this relates to the culture of our organisations.
At Elettric 80, we are heavily involved in our local community and are very proud of our heritage.
Food and drink are two key exports of our region and when time allows we are delighted to take our customers on a "trip of the senses".
Eating well, enjoying a good bottle of wine and tasting "Aceto Balsamico" in one of our best restaurants is an unforgettable experience and something we always like to share with our guests.
On the following we would like to give you a little insight into what Italy is famous for all around the world, apart from the Elettric 80 Freeway system of course!
A vinegar maker
In the heart of the ancient lands of Countess Matilde of Canossa, among the charming hills of Viano and Baiso, is where the vinegar-cellar Acetaia G&G is located.
The traditional recipe, ancient knowledge handed down from father to son, is followed with care and accuracy by the Grassi Family. The result is an extraordinary product, aged in vintage barrels, which will make any special occasion.
A cheese maker
Fattoria Rossi is located in the area once ruled by Countess Matilde of Canossa at the foot of the Reggio Hills, the home of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
It is a family-run farm that has been making this acclaimed cheese for many generations, handling every phase of production: from raising the cows and producing the milk, to processing and marketing the finished product.
Good food is a long-standing tradition and passion with Ermanno Casini and his family.
A core philosophy of La Capannina is: "every fruit has its own season".
Therefore, in the right season you will find mushrooms and truffles, which is typical Viano produce, while throughout the year you can enjoy dishes made with balsamic vinegar, a thousand-year old tradition in these historic lands dating from the days of Matilde, Countess of Canossa.
