January - month dedicated to the traditional pork production


The tradition of the pork production in Umbria is very ancient.
The word "Norcino", an expert in the making of all pork products, is derived from the Umbrian town of Norcia, well-known since the Middle Ages for its pork produce.
January is the traditional month for the pork processing thanks to the cold of the Winter. In ancient times freezers didn’t exist and people used the natural cold of the Season to prepare their cured meats (salami, prosciutto, sausages) that they had during the year.

Many villages and towns in our area organize events connected to this traditions, like the little city of Montegabbione near Orvieto.

Here the programme of the event that will take place this weekend 15th/16th/17th January.

The 17th January is also Sant’ Antonio’s day, Patron of the animals. Following the tradition in many villages there will be the Blessing of the domestic animal, in the past cows, chickens, pigs and sheep, now mainly our 4-legged friends: cats and dogs.
