THE GREAT ITALIAN SHOP
"The idea was born after a motorbike trip through the most beautiful and authentic places in Italy."
A MEETING OF KNOWLEDGE AND FLAVORS
In those countryside and in those villages it is still possible to find traditional knowledge, capable of giving life to full and unique flavours. It happens when you meet men and learn their stories, made of care, ethics and respect, for the territory and for the rural culture, which is all the more contemporary as it is older.
A PLACE FOR RELATIONSHIPS
Meeting the pasta makers, the cheesemakers, the winemakers who work the products of the land and livestock with the right economy of spirit, gave rise to the decision. Create a digital shop, a place for relationships and purchases, where you can create a community between growers, breeders, producers and people who make taking care of things, the territory and food their lifestyle.

"We do things with care"
We select, describe and deliver the original artisan food and wine products to your home.
THE SUPPLY CHAIN
The farm covers the entire supply chain, from hay to the production of Parmigiano Reggiano. The dairy works with milk coming exclusively from our cows, and the hay we feed them comes from our fields.
THE AGRICULTURAL NETWORK
La Grande Bottega Italiana is the leader of a selected network of growers, breeders and producers of food and wine excellence, capable of creating a space for meetings, relationships and purchases between the agricultural network and a community of food enthusiasts.
We have been able to combine the tradition of the art of producing Parmigiano Reggiano with environmental sustainability: we are completely independent from an energy point of view thanks to photovoltaic and biogas systems. Our farms have low water consumption and we do not use any type of fertilizer or chemical agent.
In our Mondo Piccolo farm, in Roccabianca, we produce a very high quality Parmigiano Reggiano, recognized by the consortium with the Premium label. A unique product, dedicated to lovers of good food, pleasant on the palate even after maturing for up to 120 months of our most prized forms.
