The milk roads

speaker Roberta Garibaldi

FORME wants to launch a national project for the creation of cheese routes as a tourism and development opportunity. The main protagonists will be territories, PDO and local cheeses from Bergamo, the Cheese Valleys and Lombardy. The goal is to include the dairy sector in tourist itineraries, by organising visits to dairies and production sites, including mountain pastures, by promoting the knowledge and use of cheese in restaurants and by pointing out the link with territories and the artistic/cultural heritage. The Bergamo Venetian Walls, UNESCO heritage, will be another topic that will be discussed.
