In the second half of the XIX century an innovative agronomist like Carlo Rognoni pushed for tomato growing, supporting agronomic experiments.
The museum aims to cover the history of the tomato, production techniques and proposes the reconstruction of an old factory for tomato preserves with machinery from the time.
For gourmets and those who enjoy fine dining, the Tomato is ready to be tasted on every occasion and in all sorts of different combinations.
