The entire country of Italy, as it is well known, is a very resourceful country, a deposit of art, culture, of multiform environmental and natural atmospheres which appear all over its “boot shaped” territory.

This diversification is not only geographic, in fact its regions express it through their folklore and customs; a variety which is entirely reflected in the great gastronomic Italian tradition.

The attention reserved in defending this great heritage derives not only in the consciousness that it is an essential advantage for persons who appreciate the good cuisine and desire to appreciate it in its various aspects, but also to ascertain that the traditional gastronomy is also a factor of great importance for the national economy.
