With this project, we are determined to promote productions of high-quality Italian potatoes - those normally defined as niche and unknown to the general public - grown far from the fertile plains of the Po River or the high plain of Fucino in L'Aquila, two of the areas that specialise in these varieties.

We are conducting a study, a voyage in the farming traditions of a country that sinks its roots in history and customs. In general, these potatoes are grown in mountain or piedmont zones (moreover, this describes 80% of Italy), where the cool climate and type of terrain distinctly define the organoleptic characteristics of each variety.
