The Taleggio is a cheese of very old origins, perhaps anterior to the X century. Some documents dated up to XIII century refer to the commerce and the exchanges concerning our cheese, with other cheeses. Its origin area is the Val Taleggio, in the province in Bergamo, from which derives the name of the cheese. The inhabitants of this valley in order to preserve the exceeding milk, began to produce some cheese that, once seasoned in "caves" or in their valley farm, could be exchanged with other products or commercialized. Because of the increasing of the Taleggio cheese use, its production is progressively extended in the Padana plan.
