The Italy of DOP Tourism, the network of quality food and wine experiences is born
Minister Garavaglia: "Working together with the Consorzi di tutela on the strategic plan for the food and wine sector."
Alessandro Piana - Vice President and Councillor for Agriculture of the Liguria Region.
"A meeting to network the potential and peculiarities of agri-food products, which saw the convinced participation of the Protection Consortia from different Italian areas. Non-intensive productions of excellence that represent us all over the world and that can be the real engine of territorial marketing. Proposing different offers of oil-related experiences, from itineraries to farm history cases, allows us to discover one of the flagships of our region and the efforts of a heroic agriculture that is the result of passion and sacrifice."
Giovanni Berrino - Liguria Region Councillor for Tourism
"The olive tree is one of the symbols of Liguria, just as oil is the true heart of our tradition. The link between the territory and the excellence of our products is one of the fundamental and strategic keys of our tourism. The year of definitive recovery confirms how in Liguria we are also targeting the immense 'green sea' of our hinterland within the framework of a 365-degree offer capable of satisfying the demands of those who prefer mountains to the sea. Oliveti Aperti represents a challenge for a tourist experience that can only be found in Liguria."
Carlo Siffredi - President of the Consorzio dell'olio Riviera Ligure DOP
"In Lucinasco on the occasion of Oliveti Aperti we launched, together with the other Consorzi di Tutela, the proposal of an organized and coordinated Tourism more and more linked to PDO products, the only ones with an authentic link with the territory. In this way we can create a tourism offer capable of implementing the other opportunities that Liguria offers. We want to raise the reputation of our oil, which historically is one of the noblest foods."
Cesare Mazzetti - President Qualivita Foundation
"It is from the evolution of our country in this sector that the proposal of an initiative such as Turismo DOP was born, which aims to aggregate the network of entities that have already distinguished themselves in incoming activities to promote throughout the territory their experiences and grow the quality food and wine tourism sector in Italy. Uniting through a common and shared project to consolidate the cultural experiences dedicated to food and wine tourism of the Consorzi di Tutela is the commitment of the Qualivita Foundation."
