Good news never come alone – after announcing the new look for our Italian Food Lovers blog, we are happy to announce also the new redesign of the Academia Barilla official website. Same URL (www.academiabarilla.com) for a completely new website, that now offers several content features and a new web experience worth exploring.

At this point in the evolution of the online presence of Academia Barilla, we cannot refer to academiabarilla.com simply as a “corporate/institutional” website. Sure, the website still features all the info you need to discover Academia Barilla, including its company mission, philosophy, headquarters and product line but, as for our Italian Food Lovers blog, the latest design revolution involved accessibility to a lot of content!

First of all, you get a new recipe per day straight out the home page, so do not miss the opportunity to enrich your Italian gourmet cookbook by printing out some of the featured recipes.

Talking about recipes, it is impossible not to mention the nice section dedicated to the Italian regional cuisine, that you can discover by mousing-over the regions of Italy for direct access to the regional gourmet recipes, or you can reach from the page that lists all the regions of Italy. You can also explore a page featuring info about the most important gourmet products from the traditional Italian regional gastronomy.

The new Academia Barilla website proposes also the exploration of the Academia Barilla Culinary Center and, most of all, of its Gastronomic Library, that we friendly call BIGAB (for BIblioteca Gastronomica Academia Barilla), and its rich, exclusive collection of culinary treasures tht ranges from rare cookbooks to hand-written recipes from the 17th century, to historic menus and more. BIGAB will be sharing its culinary knowledge and daily recipes from the Library directly on the new Academia Barilla home page!

A not-to-miss link is the one to At the table with…, a page that lists the gastronomic profiles, culinary preferences and favorite recipes of some among the most famous people in history, from Cato to Catherine De Medicis, from Giacomo Casanova to Napoleon Bonaparte, Enrico Caruso and more.

The BIGAB team is now working on a digital indexing of all Library titles, giving priority to traditional regional Italian recipes, which will be published on the new Academia Barilla website. It is a huge effort form our BIGAB friend, so it might take some time – stay tuned with us, we will be of course announcing the good news from our blog at the beginning of next year!

No more to say, if not: click on this link and visit the new online world of Academia Barilla! We would love to get your feedback and comments about it, please use the comment box of this blog post to let us know your feeling about the new academiabarilla.com!

(thanks for the comments on the blog design, by the way – but stay tuned, more surprises to be announced tomorrow!)
