Unione Pedemontana Parmense

The Unione Pedemontana Parmense is located in Northern Italy, within the Emilia-Romagna, one of the wealthiest and most developed regions in Europe, with the third highest Gross Domestic Product per capita in Italy.

Our land, rich in History, Art and Culture, is also in the heart of the so-called “Food Valley”, famous in all over the world for the Parma Ham, Parmesan and Felino Salami.

The Union was born in 2008 and is made up of five municipalities belonging to the province of Parma: Collecchio, Felino, Montechiarugolo, Sala Baganza and Traversetolo.

It spreads over an area of 230,66 sq. kms at the foot of the Appennines, where live about 50.000 inhabitants.

The Unione Pedemontana Parmense was born to carry out several citizen services and functions on behalf of its municipalities. Moreover, it develops communal projects and events. The most important citizen services are: Local Police and Civil Protection, Social Welfare System and the help desk for business activities, which helps companies, artisans and retailers to overcome bureaucratic matters and obtain authorizations and licences. Functions on behalf of the municipalities are: Human Resources and Staff Management, Announcements and call for bids, Anticorruption and IT services. Just a few days ago the Union Council, made up by the president, the assessors and councillors elected amongst the city councilmen of the five municipalities, decided to assign to the Union also the Tourist Service, which will be implemented during this year.
