Mantova and Mantovanity:
more than a physical location, it is a way of being
Located in the heart of the “Bassa” (the lower part of the province), between the Mincio and Po rivers, Mantova is a city where a wealth of history and vibrant life meet to soothe the soul. It is the proud capital of a fertile, generous and welcoming land, where nature, millennial history and authentic flavours coexist harmoniously.
Only here could the most authentic Mantovanity be born: a combination of fine living, a taste for beautiful things, the pleasure of being together, conviviality and good food. The treasures of Mantova, an ancient capital of taste, could only have been created here and are now captured and available with the precious Mantovanity boxes.

I am Giovanna Grossi, a true Mantuan, born and bred. My idea for Mantovanity came about by bringing together three of my passions: delicious food and fine living, a love for my city and the desire to bring Mantova and its traditions to the world beyond our province.
With these five boxed sets, I have captured the heart of Mantova’s food and wine excellence, which can be chosen based on one’s particular tastes, to share and enjoy wherever and with whomsoever you like.
CHOOSE YOUR BOXED SET
Mantovanity proposals created for you
100% Mantuan, the grissini (large bread sticks), Grana Padano cheese and Mostarda. For those who always wish to start in taste.
This is a showcase for her majesty, “Mostarda”: there are four different flavoured types of Mostarda to try. For those who want to add that extra touch of flavour to any occasion.
Given their important role as some of the fruits of our rich and fertile land, a selection of Mantuan DOC wines could not be missing. For those who always seek the pleasure of living well.
How i select
Only local producers
I carefully select only local producers from Mantova and its province, who perpetuate the flavour of the rural traditions through the ages with products from our land.
I only choose typical products from small artisan companies in the province of mantova, that are appreciated for being the genuine and authentic tastes of mantuan tradition.
Only the best quality, strictly-monitored raw materials are used, to bring all the genuine goodness of the mantova area to your boxes.
