The sun, the sea, the mountains and the plains that characterize this beautiful Country, with its Mediterranean climate, make Italy the ideal place to truly find the best in terms of agricultural products and food and wine.
If we add to that the tradition and the art handed down to us by our ancestors, thanks to which recipes, practices and processes have been preserved over time, helped to create modern Italian cusine, with have hundreds of typical gastronomic products.
After all, eating is an art and we Italians, in this sense, are a people rich in culture.
