Wall Taste, accreditation and registration

I could not photograph everything or quote each exhibitor, a bit ‘for the increasingly large audience (thankfully), a little’ for a short time, but I’m sure all the companies, without exception, do an excellent job, also because in recent years with this little protection (political, territorial, bureaucracy and attention …), are the real heroes ….

Because this is the thing that has always impressed me, visiting this event, namely creativity, the passionate and absolute love of these entrepreneurs, to create and enhance products incredible, unexpected and creative delicacies with a few, and apparently usual, ingredients … a search for perfection which is not very far from the one who creates a small or great work of art, a search that is the basis of beauty and goodness of the Made in Italy.


… those who drink wine live more than the doctor that forbids it… .and it’s true …

Good life to all!
