Great meal at Osteria del Filosso in Correggio! (But what does “filosso” mean?)

This week the Lini family treated their American blogger to a wonderful meal at Osteria del Filosso in downtown Correggio, not far from the winery.

Together they enjoyed a classic luncheon of culatello and Parmigiano Reggiano, paired with Lini Lambruso Rosé (above).

And then tortelli verdi (Swiss chard ravioli) paired with Lini Lambrusco Rosso (below).

But what, he asked, does the word filosso mean?

A filosso is a chat between a group of friends.

It comes from the Italian word filare, which means to thread.

In the olden days, when people would get together to weave hemp, they would pass the time talking about this and that, as the saying goes.

And thus was born the word filosso.

We can’t recommend the Osteria del Filosso highly enough! (And our blogger thoroughly enjoyed it!)
