FICO EATALY WORLD

Forget Disney World — the new "FICO Eataly World" is a massive Italian food-themed park, and it looks just as amazing as it sounds.
The park opened on 15th November in Bologna with over three dozen restaurants, a gigantic market, and a variety of "multimedia experiences" based on food, farming, and craft. In short, Eataly World us a new must-visit spot for Italian food lovers trekking through Emilia-Romagna.
Here's everything we know about the world's first Italian food theme park.
Eataly World is focused on all aspects of Italian food: growing, harvesting, processing, and craft. Much of the park's 20 acres are dedicated to farms and factories that you can visit, enabling you to see directly how Parmigiano-Reggiano is made, or how your favourite olive oil is pressed.

Here's how the park's ethos is described on the official site: "At Eataly, each forkful of pasta has a story: farmers cultivated grains, millers ground flour, pastai (pasta makers) shaped dough, distributors delivered it to Eataly, and our chefs cooked the pasta to perfection and paired it with seasonal sauce before we drop it at your table."

In many ways, Eataly World is an extension of what the various Eataly establishments around the world already do — just many, many times larger. At Eataly, you can watch pasta get made by hand and choose to either buy some to cook yourself or have it prepared by an expert cook. You can buy the guanciale, cheese, tomato and whatever else on-site, and go make bucatini all'amatriciana at home. Or you can eat it on-site.
Eataly World takes that concept to a far grander scale, where you can see the cows who produced the milk that became the cheese you're eating. Then you can see the aging process of that cheese before it became a nutty, salty, unbelievably complex and delicious sensory experience.
Eataly World boasts a selection of 40 different food options, ranging from more casual trattorias and street-food carts to "starred restaurants."
Standouts thus far include Neapolitan pizza chain Rossopomodoro and cured-meat purveyor Antica Ardenga, though that's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of options. How about a shop dedicated to mortadella? Because that's totally a thing at Eataly World (it's actually called "Mortadella World").
Eataly's marketplaces, if you've never been, are known for having an impressive selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and fresh breads. These markets serve the community around them, and they also supply Eataly's restaurants with fresh ingredients.
At Eataly World, the same concept applies — only at a far grander scale. Eataly World features a huge open market with produce, as well as stalls surrounding it. It's essentially a really impressive supermarket.
