WHY IS ITALIAN
GASTRONOMY SO appreciated
IN THE WORLD?
Strong values, unique know-how.
cultural and gastronomic
Italy is made up of 20 regions. These are all local specialities, reminding us that the country has long been under various foreign dominations. Its strength is that it has preserved its cultural and gastronomic diversity like no other country, thanks to its strong regional and local roots.
Italy has 262 PDOs and PGIs (the largest number of protected gastronomic products, according to the Origin Food website).
Italy has managed to preserve the quality of its products by keeping the family and regional dimension of its production. High quality products. They are synonymous with high quality, but also with ancestral know-how…
Thanks to this, biodiversity is preserved and good practices are safeguarded, thanks to many actors, such as the Slow Food movement, born in Italy in 1986 and known throughout the world, which lists all the varieties in danger of disappearing in order to promote them and thus save them.
Salami, Bresaola, Pancetta, Antipasti, Speck, Cheeses, Mortadella, Gorgonzola, Mascarpone, Minestrone, Risotto, Pantelleria Capers, Ligurian Anchovies, Umbria Olive Oil, Palagonia Oranges, Vesuvius Tomatoes … The Italian culinary specialities are numerous.
