Guarcino is known for the Guarcino DOP Prosciutto, an acronym that defines the traditional agri-food products of Lazio.

This tasty mountain prosciutto was originally produced according to tradition only in the winter months from pigs grazing in the wild and had been cured at high altitude. Today it is produced throughout the year. The prosciutto has a red colour, a salty taste, is matured for 7-8 months and has an average weight of 8-10 kg. To complement every palate, there is also a smoked version.
