Preservation and Protection

Through the centuries Italy has attained a distinguished reputation for the uniqueness of its locally produced foods and wines.  Traditional methods of production are increasingly at risk as numbers of true artisans decline combined with a general trend toward mass production.

Associazione Passignano will seek out small local producers of wine, olive oil, honey and other products who continue to employ traditional production methods and who can benefit from financial support that will help to ensure the continuation of their businesses.

Project submissions

We are looking for your submission to aid in the preservation and protection of architecture, art and gastronomy for our consideration.
