The Castelli Romaniis an area of great tourist interest, located southeast of Rome, characterised by a gastronomic and oenological culture of great importance.
The area covers an area of about 15,000 hectares and includes 16 municipalities, each of which contributes to the creation of a unique culture.
The history of the Castelli Romani region dates back to Roman times, when Roman nobles built their villas among the volcanic hills of the area to escape the heat and congestion of the city. Since then, the area has become a reference point for the production of typical local products, such as bread made with local flours, roast pork and cheese.
Among the typical dishes, spaghetti all’arrabbiata or cacio e pepe stand out, as well as bucatini all’amatriciana. The main courses that dominate the table include roast lamb, chicken, pork, tripe and lamb cutlets accompanied by potatoes, peppers, chicory, artichokes, mushrooms and broccoli raab.
The production of quality wines is also excellent, thanks to the Lazio Malvasia, Trebbiano and Greco grapes, the most widespread in the region.
