When does one use Grana Padano and Pecorino cheese?

Grated Grana Padano, made from cow’s milk, is milkier and milder and it goes well with milder sauces from the north of Italy. Grated pecorino, a sheep’s milk cheese, is more intense in flavor and can sometimes be a bit salty. It is predominantly made and used in southern Italy, to accompany sauces with more pronounced flavor.
