The secret of gastronomical tradition of Rome and its territory is based on the use of raw materials, particularly on typical Roman products that offer a real proof of culture and ancient flavours.
From 121 Towns in the Province of Rome come out 55 products, protected by PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) or PGI (European Protected Geographic Indication). Eleven of them are in a transitory protection, waiting to obtain the brand protection.
Other products are recognized as traditional and they can be associated to the name of Roma or Roman and are strictly linked to the territory and to the long historical tradition. That is why they are so famous in the food Roman culture.
