Founded in 1979, the San Nicola Prosciuttificio del Sole S.p.A. faclity is located in upper Val Parma in the Parma Apennine mountains. Built upon a waterfront immersed entirely in green, the structure is 2000 feet above sea level - several miles away from population centers, and even further away from industrial centres.

The isolated location and natural scenery produce a spectacular visual impact; but the importance of this unusual location lies specifically in the clear air, which directly benefits the fundamental and distinctive San Nicola curing process.
