The “Cena dei Mille” will have a beneficial purpose: the funds raised will be donated to Emporio Solidale Parma, which assists over a thousand families in difficulty.
Thanks to the collaboration of Destination Tourist Emilia, the guests of the “Cena dei Mille” can also enjoy typical products from the territories of Piacenza and Reggio Emilia.
