Must-see regions for foodies/wine lovers?

We're starting to plan a trip to Italy next summer (2014) with our daughter who will be 2.5 by then. We're trying to decide where to go visit--we think we'd like to do two regions (the last time we went in 2010 we did Tuscany and Liguria and we absolutely loved them both, but would love to explore more of Italy and its amazing regional differences.) We're considering doing the Veneto for its wine, and then we're up in the air about the second region. Any suggestions of where to go during the summer with a toddler? Our main focus when traveling is the food and wine, and we tend to like to stay away from the big cities since we live in NYC and deal with the hectic big city life on a daily basis (and we've done Rome, Venice, and Florence when we were younger). We are considering Parma or Sicily but really we're open to any suggestions! Many thanks!

Emilia Romagna and it is close to the Veneto region. It has Parma, Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Rimini and Ravenna just to mention a few.

If the Campania region appeals at all, perhaps try this for some idea of the local specialities to be enjoyed here:

- but don't ask why so nice a leaflet, financed only a few years back by the authorities, is now available only from the website run for a group of B&B operators!!

Hard to find these days, but they (the Regione di Campania) also supported this - the best such guide to the area that we've seen:
