Salumi in Italy

Hi my wife and I are going to Italy this summer and we both enjoy Salumi a whole lot. We are already planning a wine tour or two, and it got me thinking, are there similar Salumi tours or places where it its produced that you can visit? I love to go to such a place and see how they make it, see the pigs and have a tasting. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I did some googling and I couldn't find anything.

  1. There's this:

    But it doesn't say anything about seeing the pigs and may require booking by a group rather than individuals.

      1. Where are you going in Italy? It is a very large country, with pigs (almost) everywhere. How do you feel about wild pigs?

        1. This site is in Italian, but very useful--search by region for listings of producers of salumi (and/or formaggi, etc), some of which are also agriturismi. Contacts and websites are listed, and those that are agriturisimi as opposed to strictly commercial producers should be open to showing you round.
