Typical Products

Ariccia is known worldwide as home of the IGP label porchetta (spiced roast pork), undoubtedly the most important typical product, celebrated with an annual festival during the first weekend of September. The art of preparing porchetta dates back to Roman times; this delicacy was one of Emperor Nero's favorite dishes. This art belongs exclusively to certain families of Ariccia, who hand down the secret from father to son.
