The history of Le Selle di Vallolmo:
The Selve di Vallolmo forests are located in Casentino, a valley surrounded by centuries-old Apennine forests. In this area, still little known to tourists, it has been possible to maintain and preserve the ancient crafts related to agriculture, livestock breeding and cooking, rich in local products. Today, Le Selve di Vallolmo carry on their activity in a sustainable manner and contribute to keeping the traditions of Casentino alive. The company also breeds and processes the famous Grigio del Casentino, a pig native to the area, from which the delicious Prosciutto del Casentino, a Slow Food presidium, is made.
