violino di capra

goat prosciutto

A speciality of Piedmont, Lombardy and the Valle d'Aosta, so called because you hold it like a violin to slice it. Up in the Alps they also make violino di capriolo (roe deer) and violino di camoscio (chamois). Piedmont also makes lamb prosciutto: violino d'agnello.
