This year we will return to the Salone Moresco for a sit down dinner (tried to suggest a more modest venue, but it was turned down!).

The hall was designed to host celebrations and was the grandest of such halls to be built in Salsomaggiore’s heyday. Bernardo Bertolucci filmed a scene from “The last Emperor in this hall.

The Salone Moresco next to the restaurant where we will go for Pizza on Friday evening, “La Porchetta”.  The entrance is off the small roundabout just uphill from La Porchetta.
