A brand of salami known as Galileo is celebrating 75 years of making the cured meats by welcoming salami fans into their family with a chance to win a unique culinary experience in a seaside region of Italy.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to speak Italian.
All you have to do is simply share a photo of yourself on Instagram using the hashtags #GalileoFamily and #Sweepstakes and tag @GalileoSalame.
If you follow the rules of the contest, you are automatically entered for a chance to win a weeklong trip for two to Italy to explore the history and culinary riches of the seaside region of Le Marche, known for its agricultural products, vegetables, meats, grapes, olives and truffle hunting.
“For the better part of a century, we’ve been curing authentic Italian salame with the idea of family and tradition,” said Jeremy Kross, Brand Manager at Galileo, a company that was started in 1945 by Frank Sorba in San Francisco. “The ‘Welcome to the Family’ program celebrates our Italian heritage and, of course, the deliciousness of salame.”
The winners will learn about the history of the Galileo brand and explore incredible destinations there like Ancona, a city and seaport that sits along Italy’s Adriatic coast; Mount Conero, known as a “small piece of heaven” on the Adriatic Sea with some of the clearest water; and finally, San Marino, said to be the world’s oldest surviving republic.
While in Sant’Angelo in Vado, the winners will visit La Tavola Marche, a unique hands-on culinary experience where guests can immerse themselves in Italian culture and food. The company says that crafting Italian meats in the Bay Area where the temperate climate is like that of northern Italy, makes it the ideal location in America to cure salami.
There’s no purchase necessary, but you do need a public Instagram account. Simply post an Instagram photo of yourself and use the hashtags #GalileoFamily and #Sweepstakes and tag @GalileoSalame. Don’t use the likeness of any famous person, though, as it states in the official rules here.
The trip for two will last for seven days, six nights, and is valued at $7,500 U.S. The contest ends on October 21, after which they will do a random drawing to determine the winner.
