«For our small island and its inhabitants is a real pleasure to host this event �“ said Susanna Errera, Deputy Mayor of the Island of Linosa �“ which is part of a major project aimed to the revitalization, enhancement and upgrading of existing traditions in our land».
The seminar aims to contribute to the achievement of three objectives. First, to disseminate the results obtained from the project to the industry, the institutional actors and more generally to the inhabitants of the areas. Secondly, to raise awareness of the industry and consumers on the territoriality of production, in order to increase the value of production. And yet, to propose to the tourism industry new elements that enrich the offer.
The program includes two different phases. The presentation of agronomic and oenological results achieved during the first year of experimentation in all the areas involved and especially the island of Linosa and the description of the characteristics of experimental wines offered for tasting.
«Linosa �“ explains Lucio Monte, chief scientist of the project - has been a challenge for our Institute, who believed in the potential production of this small Mediterranean island by starting in 2008 the construction of an experimental field of about 4000 plants».
And the wines produced, according to the technicians of the research, give promise about the ability to recover eroded soils, depleted, and ancient methods of cultivation and management of the plots, such as traditional dry stone walls, to stimulate both agriculture and tourism.
