The LEADING THREAD of the activity planned jointly by the UNESCO Clubs of Asti and Canelli as part of the FAO Celebrations of the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables 2021 – IYFV 2021 refers to the historical / cultural / artistic / agronomic / nutritional / culinary and social heritage of the rich local variety of fruit and vegetable varieties.
The purpose of the initiatives carried out is the GROWTH OF AWARENESS (not only in local scale) of the role and importance of the BIODIVERSITY of Asti and Monferrato in the field of horticultural and fruit crops which has found singular and appreciated expression in many other fields: from art to cooking, from village festivals to internationally renowned products from the processing industry.
Another purpose of the planned activities is the dissemination of local knowledge and above all of experiences matured over time aimed at enhancing agricultural productions, that are in themselves poor, in a perspective that has become of international excellence, that could also be useful for other realities in the world in the FAO spirit of sharing agricultural values and practices.
