Brescia

Overview

The city of Brescia is located 149 meters above sea level, at the foot of the Prealps. Known as the “Lioness of Italy,” Brescia boasts a millennia-old history, dating back to the Bronze Age. Its historic centre is a treasure trove of art and architecture, with landmarks such as the Castle, the Old Cathedral, and the Capitolium, the largest Roman archaeological area in northern Italy.

Beyond its rich history, Brescia is a vibrant and modern city with a dynamic cultural and artistic life. The Santa Giulia Museum, one of the largest museum complexes in Italy and part of the UNESCO site “The Longobards in Italy,” offers a fascinating overview of local history and culture. The scenic roads climbing the surrounding hills provide spectacular views and a journey through nature.

Brescia is easily accessible and well-connected, making it an ideal destination for those looking to discover a city that blends past and present, art, innovation, and hospitality.

Food

Brescia, a city rich in history and culture, is also renowned for its exquisite gastronomy, offering a delightful variety of local specialties and traditional dishes that captivate the palates of visitors.

From succulent spiedo and tender beef cooked in oil to savoury game and exquisite cured meats, the Brescia region is abundant with culinary delights. The lake areas boast a rich tradition of fish-based cuisine, featuring dishes like baked stuffed tench and sun-dried aole. Polenta, once a staple food for common people, remains a beloved accompaniment for meat and fish dishes, as well as for the region’s D.O.P. cheeses. Among the first courses, Casonsèi, ravioli filled with eggs, cheese, spinach, or meat, symbolize the gastronomic influence of neighbouring provinces.

New De.Co. Brescian Products: Brescia’s culinary excellences continue to garner acclaim and recognition, with Bossolà, Biscotto Bresciano, Persicata, and Pirlo officially awarded the De.Co. designation! This title, standing for Municipal Denomination, seals the reputation of these four culinary gems and their production methods, linking them to their places of origin and contributing to their importance and valorisation.

  • BOSSOLÀ: Made with simple ingredients like eggs, flour, butter, sugar, and yeast, Bossolà is a soft ring cake. The professional benchmark is Maestro Massari’s recipe, which involves five processing stages and seven hours of leavening.
  • BISCOTTO BRESCIANO: Imagine your grandmother’s biscuit, add a touch of lightness, give it a delicate flavour, and a slight hint of vanilla… and there you have the Biscotto Bresciano De.Co.! Perfect for dipping and very crumbly.
  • PERSICATA: In Brescia, there are two areas particularly suited for peach cultivation: Collebeato and Concesio. Here, peaches harvested in September are used to create Persicata, a delicious jelly cut into bars with the texture of a solid and extremely soft jam.

Wines and Beverage

Brescia also stands out as a land of vineyards, cultivated since Roman times, with a native excellence at the foot of Brescia Castle: the Pusterla Vineyard, Europe’s largest urban vineyard with a millenary history! Prominent Brescian wines include those of Franciacorta, notably the Franciacorta DOCG, the first Italian sparkling wine to receive this prestigious designation. Other notable wines include those of Garda, as well as those of Botticino, Cellatica, and Capriano del Colle, produced on the hills surrounding Brescia.
