An afternoon to talk about the past, present and future of Piglio thanks to the eno-gastronomic tourism.

The past was represented by the presentation of a posthumous publication by Massimo Felli presented by his two sons; the present by Stefano Matturro in the multiple role of President of the Concrete Cooperative, director of the Cantina Sociale di Piglio and member of the Strada Del Cesanese Association. Stefano is also one of the best producers of Cesanese del Piglio DOCG based in the splendid Casale Verde Luna.

Then, we talked about the future, how these territories can convert their economies thanks to the particular contingency that tourists to Rome can escape from the capital for two days and go in search of real experiences in the countryside.

There are steps to be taken to help local businesses grow and become more ‘Friends of the Tourist’ but above all there is a big task of communication to undertake. Only then can the message pass that behind a good glass of Cesanese wine there is a territory to discover and that it is worth planning a weekend in this area.

At the end of the day Antonio Borgia, president of the Strada Del Cesanese Association and Mayor Mario Felli presented prizes to the producers and key members of Cesanese wine production.
