This is the fifth issue in the series "Italy's food and wine culture" and is dedicated to the region of Lombardy.

The colorful obverse features a reproduction of a panettone cake and a glass in which the sparkling Franciacorta wine is being poured; in the background, an outline of Milan Cathedral highlighting a detail of the Gothic rose window with the Visconti heraldic symbol called “Raza”, drawn from the central stained glass window in the Cathedral, flanked by decorative elements representing the Camunian Rose.

The reverse shows a selection of typical elements from the food and wine culture of Lombardy. In the foreground, the obverse features the “Pan de Toni” which, according to legend, turned into the modern name of the panettone, the typical Lombardy cake made from egg, lemon, flour, orange peel, candied citrus, raisins, and butter; the typical basket used to cool the cake upside down after cooking stands out and we also see the outline of a stem glass and of bottle of Franciacorta sparkling wine. These wines are produced using the same traditional method as Champagne, unlike other Italian sparkling wines that use the charmat method. In the background, stylised Guelph battlements which are typical of the castles in the Franciacorta area, and a skyline of the most important monuments of Lombardia: the Ducal Palace of Mantua, the Palazzo della Loggia in Brescia, the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and the Torrazzo in Cremona; the composition is completed by the Camunian Rose, a symbol of the Region of Lombardy which was inspired by the rock carvings of the Val Camonica recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
