Mozzateca, where flavour becomes knowledge

Everything that is known about Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP is in just one place. This is the goal of the Mozzateca, the library, located in the offices of the Consorzio di Tutela and which safeguards and archives texts and documents relating to the buffalo farming sector and the transformation of buffalo milk.

An important reference point for activities of study and research, the library consists of six different sections: Technology of the buffalo milk production chain; Food and Agriculture Law and Economics, The History of farming, Conference Papers, Degree dissertations, and Journals.

Here the history and art of cheese-making meet with chemistry and food hygiene, gastronomy and nutrition, law and marketing. This documentary patrimony is updated continuously and is accessible to the public on appointment. Those who are merely curious or enthusiasts can find out information by consulting essays, rare journals, degree dissertations, photographs, period prints and private documents on site.

Mozzateca is part of the Italian National Library Service and is part of the Polo SBN in Naples.


Our archive also exists in a digital version

Without digitalization, human knowledge remains unexplored and enclosed in just a few places. We have digitalized the entire Mozzateca archive in order to reduce all functional, physical and cultural distances.

The Consorzio di Tutela Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP Library guarantees digital access to the texts in our collection to academics and university students on official request by their supervisors.
