In fat and calories: Fossa cheese contains 45% fat, but it tastes so decided to flavor many dishes with a minimal amount of calories because it takes only a few grams. Origin: Fossa cheese is produced in Emilia Romagna in the town of Rimini and Forli (Sogliano the Rubicon); Umbria is produced in Citta' di Castello, Gubbio, Splinter, and Pascelupo Costacciaro; Marche is produced in the provinces of Pesaro (Talamello Cartoceto). Season: all year round. Traceability: the media. Storage: Store in a refrigerator at + 4, + 8 ° C. Features: aged cheese is a fat cheese, crumbly, tasty and very intense scent; its aroma recalls the scent of wild berries, wood, truffles and musk; its flavor is distinctive and unique and goes from sweet to spicy. History: The aged cheese is old and especially typical of Sogliano the Rubicon in Forlinese and known since the fifteenth century. Its name comes from the fact that farmers in the region used to hide under the ground, four or five feet deep, in hollow tuff, to save him from marauding bandits. Production: the cheese pit mature for two or three months in the open air; Then, in August, are wrapped in white sheets, placed in a bag, twenty or twenty-five at a time, wrapped in hay and stored in pits tuff-shaped flasks, about 3 feet deep for two in diameter, where the temperature hovers around 20 ° C and there is a degree of humidity of '80-90%. Before being filled, the pits are clean burning straw and twigs and then coated straw and reeds to favor the dripping of the whey of the cheese and avoid contact with the walls of the pit. Having stowed bags of cheese in it, these are closed with wooden lids and, according to tradition, the cheese caves are closed for 90 days in August and remain there until November 25, the day of St. Catherine. In the kitchen: in order to better enjoy the taste of the cheese of the pit is preferable to take it for a few hours at room temperature. This cheese, eaten by itself, is really great, but even in the kitchen is a real wild card: the combination with honey enhances the taste and it's great to be accompanied by fruit compote called 'savor', a preparation of grape must cooked long with various types of fruit, with either fresh or dried fruit. It 'also a perfect seasoning to add flavor to pasta, risotto, gnocchi and ravioli dish au gratin and vegetable-based. It goes well with red wine sweet, such as Valpolicella and Bardolino.

A Sogliano the Rubicon (FC), the pits are open on the day of St. Catherine, November 25, the day when the streets of this country are filled with the fragrant smell of pecorino cheese. Overall, we can say that the aged cheese comes with irregular shapes and intoxicating for its unique flavor and aroma that make it unique not only to experts in the field; with regard to the color, it approaches the straw then a hue of light yellow to traits similar to that of the straw. Tough and strong, his pasta.

The old Faventia, already a Roman municipality, is developed in the late Republican era along the route of the Via Emilia, near the Lamone River. The city, known worldwide for its production of ceramic art, throughout the Middle Ages was the capital of a territorium civil and ecclesiastical from the mountains on the border with Tuscany extended to the valleys to the north of Lugo and Bagnacavallo. The territory was divided into nearly thirty pievati. The urban structure of the old town essentially corresponds to the Roman tem, although in some cases later interventions have disrupted the regular grid primitive. From here you already branched at the time two roads, one of which - a Roman Cardo - led to Bagnacavallo and the other in Ravenna, also reachable by water. The city, Episcopalian, became a municipality in the twelfth century and later, in the fourteenth century, a lordship ruled by Manfredi. In the urban structure emerge a few vestiges of cultural construction in the Middle Ages that dominated the center of the city. The Basilica of Santa Maria foris Portam, or Santa Maria Vecchia, considered by many erroneously the primitive cathedral of the city, is the oldest religious building in Faenza which we have news. The bell tower, probably built in the tenth or eleventh century, is, by its octagonal shape, unique that is unparalleled in the region and that has led to the hypothesis that the structure insists on the walls of a former baptistery. The crypt of the church of Saints Ippolito and Lorenzo is what survives of a medieval church, of which ignores the safe history, replaced by a new building between 1771 and 1774. The church of Santa Maria Maddalena of the Commandery, with the adjoining Hospice of the Holy Sepulchre, was probably founded in the early twelfth century. Of this primitive complex, originally a Commandery of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, and of the Knights of Malta, few traces remain.
