parma at a glance A longtime favorite of foodies, Parma does not disappoint when it comes to delicious cuisine. But its fine food and famous offerings, like Parmesan and Parma, are only a fraction of what makes Parma so special. Along with its beautiful medieval architecture and top-notch restaurants and bars, Parma boasts an outstanding collection of artwork as well as one of Italy’s best opera houses, Teatro Regio. Parma’s Lombard-Romanesque Duomo is revered for its Antonio da Correggio painting in the main cupola, the Assumption and the frieze in the south transept by Benedetto Antelami of The Deposition. Antelami is also the man responsible for the bulk of the city’s 12th century Baptistery and its reliefs. Beyond the Duomo, Correggio has another renowned masterpiece in Parma. The dome of San Giovanni Evangelista features his fresco of the Vision of St. John at Patmos.
