Lazio Precious 2019: Exhibition of Excellent Food & Wine
Team up to enhance the territorial brand, exploiting a privileged showcase, able to intercept a cosmopolitan and increasingly aware public.
With this spirit, May 4 in Rome (Hotel Westin Excelsior) returns, Lazio Prezioso , the event promoted for the second edition by the historic magazine Cucina & Vini and this year organized for the first time in collaboration with ARSIAL, the Regional Agency for the Development and Innovation of Agriculture of Lazio, which aims to tell the rich regional basket in a single unmissable appointment. On the glasses, the wines of the entire territory, with a prevalence of producers arriving from the province of Rome, not by chance the largest agricultural municipality in Europe.
But in the tasting counter, open to the public from 16.00 to 22.00 (entry for operators at 14.30), it will be possible to taste references from each province, together with some of the most representative local food products, starting from the cured meats and the cheeses.
“ It is indisputable that Lazio has very ancient traditions in terms of food production – says Francesco D’Agostino, director of Cucina & Vini – and that Rome represents the main market, as well as the most strategic. And if on the one hand the increase in the seventies volumes determined a sharp decline in average quality, leaving enormous market space to productions outside the region, on the other hand the inversion of the trend of the last twenty years, especially in wine, found a positive response in the criticism, while not yet creating among consumers a widespread awareness of the actual quality levels of our agri-food sector. In this sense – concludes D’Agostino -Lazio Prezioso, therefore, wants to make a decisive contribution to the promotion and enhancement of the wide range of products that, like those from the most renowned areas of the country, have a great economic and cultural value. But the only way to do this is to network to overcome parochialism and to build together that healthy territorial pride, useful to give a fundamental impulse to the Lazio brand „.
