As you would guess, Parma is famous for its Parmesan cheese and Parma ham. This is a university city in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy that was the birthplace of the famous Italian poet, Attilio Bertolucci. Parma is also known for its music, art, architecture and its stunning countryside. It's actually divided into 2 by a stream of the same name and is home to one of the oldest universities in the world, the University of Parma. The city is practically devoid of cars and is a cycling paradise or where you can simply walk for hours feasting not just on local delicacies but the eye-candy of its historical buildings that go back eons. There is the Parma Cathedral cloaked in frescoes, the pink marble Baptistery in the city's heart and a 19th Century Opera house. Said to be more cosmopolitan than Modena and less noisy than Bologna, Parma is where you should indulge in long lunches of Lambrusco wine and prosciutto or aged Parmigiano on crispy bread before you head to your coworking venue to actually get some work done.
Italians have creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Parma may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city, plus there are the meandering globetrotters with laptops in their backpacks that linger longer than they should. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate in one of the most livable cities of Italy where gorging on stuffed pasta dishes such as "tortelli d'erbetta" is a given.
