The 11th International Wine Culture Forum opened today in Rome.
The event hosted the event was the Free International University and Social Studies of Rome (LUISS).
Many guests attended the event. Among these, also the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella.
The university president and president of ENI Emma Marcegaglia, ex-leader of Confindustria, opened the proceedings.
The Marcegaglia, reports ANSA, in the presence of Mattarella, said: “Wine is culture, and it is deeply in our country where it is part of our history and represents the future of Italy”.
The president then added that “Italy is the world’s leading producer of wine and has the world record for the number of grape varieties that can then be on the market: 70% of Italian wine is the result of native grapes, not international ones. The wine sector also shapes the Italian landscape, so it is also a sector that creates beauty “.
The words of Marcegaglia find confirmation in the data of a research Unioncamere, which states that if the wine made in Italy was united, it would be the third brand in the world.
