The Tortellini of Valeggio

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Valeggio has always challenged Bologna’s title as the birthplace of the “tortellino”, an ethereal leaf of pasta, sublime stuffing and a timeless tradition. Now that you’re here, you can’t miss sampling the tortellini of Valeggio sul Mincio! Legend tells of a love story between a troop captain and a nymph. The couple fell in love instantly but the beautiful nymph had to return to the waters of the Mincio before the break of dawn. As a love token, she gave the captain a knotted handkerchief. In today’s folklore, it is said that on feast days girls used to celebrate the story of the two lovers by rolling out pastry as thin as silk, cutting shapes, knotting them like a golden handkerchief and embellishing them with a delicious filling. It was the Tortellino of Valeggio.
