Cicoli is a traditional cured meat product that is popular in the Campania region of Italy. It is made from pork fatback, which is seasoned with salt, pepper, and various herbs and spices. The fatback is then rolled up and tied with string before being cured for several months.

Cicoli can be found in various towns and communes in Campania, including Naples, Salerno, and Avellino. In Naples, it is often enjoyed as a topping for pizza or added to pasta dishes for extra flavor. In Salerno, it is commonly used in Traditional Recipesss such as “Cicoli e Patate,” which is a dish made with cicoli, potatoes, and other ingredients like garlic and rosemary.

Cicoli has been recognized as a traditional Italian food product (PAT) by the Italian Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies. This recognition ensures that the product is made according to specific specifications and traditional methods. The PAT recognition guarantees the authenticity and quality of the product, making it a sought-after delicacy in the region.
