Piazzoli Jean-Pascal Charcuterie in Linguizzetta
Artisanal Corsican Charcuterie Since 1985 - Video
In the eastern plain in the commune of Linguizzetta after Alistro towards Aléria, Jean-Pascal Piazzoli - breeder producer of Corsican farm charcuterie for 37 years - works with his wife Marie-Jeanne. They have been joined by their sons, thus perpetuating the family know-how.
The family business was created by Jean-Pascal's aunt who, upon retiring, entrusted the family affair to Jean-Pascal and his wife Marie-Jeanne. Together, they do everything from A to Z, breeding, fattening, charcuterie; only the slaughtering is done at the Ponte-Leccia abattoir.
Piazzoli charcuterie was featured in the program "Météo à la carte" on France 3 in February 2021.
Pig Farming in the Wild
The farm consists of 6 sows, 20 piglets, one boar, and 80 porkers that roam in the commune of Linguizzetta in the wild.
Marie-Jeanne and Jean-Pascal only produce dry charcuterie, namely figatellu from December to March, sausage, lonzu, coppa, prizuttu (Corsican ham), panzetta, bulagna sold until the entire annual production is sold out.

Direct Sales - 2024 Prices
The Linguizzetta shop is located below the Piazzoli family's home. It is open all year round and offers direct sales of charcuterie (subject to availability), with prisuttu and belly available by order only.
The prices of the charcuterie have changed little, with some prices remaining the same. Despite being severely impacted by the doubling of animal feed costs and gas prices, Marie-Jeanne and Jean-Pascal have tried to reflect the effects of inflation on their prices as little as possible, choosing notably to grow their own grains, including triticale. With the help of their sons, they hope to make this agricultural investment profitable while gaining autonomy in light of the volatility of food prices.
Every summer from June 1st to September 1st, Jean-Pascal and Marie-Jeanne can be found at the Bravone market where, every Thursday from 8 am to 1 pm, the artisans of the region gather.
