The origin of Italian salami goes back to the beginning of time and pig used to make salami, is one of the animals Italians appreciated most. In Italy, the use of pig meat, especially salted and processed ones also have an ancient tradition.
In the past, animals were reared to meet the village or family requirements. The first time Italy witnessed none-nomadic breeding was during the time of Etruscan. According to archaeologist’s testimony, over 50,000 pieces of animal bones were found in Forcello (V century B.C.), in Mantua’s province. 60 percent of the bones are from pigs. Studies showed that the bones belonged to pigs that are approximately 2 – 3 years of age but the bones of the rear legs are not found. Probably, that was when charcuterie product’s concept was born.
During Roman times, the interest is mainly on pork legs. Ham becomes the favorite product obtained from pork and the most consumed salami. The successive Barbarian invasions turned pigs into the most important resources for villages and countryside. In fact, the ham, pancettas and shoulders become monetary currency.
Pig grazing during the middle ages is so important that people measure woods according to their ability to nourish pigs. With the passing of time, pig breeding and eating of products related to pork progressively gain importance.
Between the 12th and 17th centuries, jobs linked to pork processing sees a strong development in Italy. Today, the pork processing tradition has been passed down to the artisans and the food industry to create innovative pork products and sometimes rediscover its ancient recipes.
