Italy is a place full of things to do surrounded by art and history, many monuments, and museums to visit and breathtaking landscapes to enjoy but it is known that culinary traditions are an important part of our cultural identity and every Region has always different flavors and dishes to discover, prepared with local and fresh ingredients often coming from local producers such as extra virgin olive oil, fruits, vegetables, cheese and fish. Our alimentation is very varied and the so-called “Mediterranean Diet” is considered a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2010. ..
