THE WORLD’S LARGEST FOOD PARK. COVERING AN AREA OF 100,000 SQM IN BOLOGNA, FICO EMBODIES THE WONDERS OF ITALIAN BIODIVERSITY.
FICO was born out of a passion for the heritage of Italian agri-food biodiversity. In just one place you can learn about the culture, traditions, and craftsmanship that make Italian food the most famous in the world. Enjoy the experiences we have designed for you every day: tours to explore crops, animals, and factories, classes, multimedia rides, and restaurants.
FICO offers many fun and educational experiences along its routes and within its grounds.
Discover Italian agriculture by visiting 2 hectares of open-air fields and stables housing more than 200 animals and 2000 cultivars.
Understand food processing by visiting the 40 farming factories and observing how meat, fish, cheese, pasta, oil, beer, sweets, etc. are processed. Taste traditional Italian food at FICO’s 40 restaurants and refreshment points. Jump on a “ride” by exploring FICO’s 6 large educational “rides” dedicated to Fire, Earth, Sea, Animals, Bottled Goods, and the Future. Learn and have fun by attending up to 30 events and 50 classes per day held in classrooms, theaters and learning facilities. Plan your meetings and conferences at FICO’s fully furnished Congress Centre accommodating from 50 to 1000 people. Inside the park, visitors can decide to walk or bike on their own or guided by FICO’s Biodiversity Ambassadors.
