(ANSA) - COSENZA, FEB 6 - A tourism boom was recorded in the gorgeous scenery of Corigliano Calabro castle from 2 to 4 February, on the occasion of the event ''Alta via del gusto trentino''. Tastings, show cooking, seminars and institutional meetings enlivened a 3-day event organised to promote two territories by the Chambers of Commerce of Cosenza and Trento, in the wake of a twinning enshrined in a memorandum of understanding signed by both entities.

''A success beyond expectations - said the president of the Cosenza Chamber of Commerce, Klaus Algieri -, which was the result of our commitment to a plan designed in order to involve our communities in this journey aiming to discover the wide range of products, cultures, knowledge and traditions scattered across our country, between the Alps and our coastline. The food and wine marriage between our products and Trentino's tradition - he added - is a major step forward for full co-operation and co-marketing strategies. This process cannot be carried out if you are alone, because it requires an ever closer dialogue between institutions. And this is the goal of the agreement protocol signed with my friend Gianni Bort, president of the Trento Chamber of Commerce''. ''Italy has a huge heritage and many surviving traditions - President Bort said -, which are intertwined in the background of one of the most beautiful landscape in the world: in the global network era, we often forget about our wealth, neglecting one of the most important economic assets of our country. It's a specific goal of the Chambers of Commerce to create a network, be a widespread presence in the territories not only to offer services to businesses, but also to put in place fruitful actions aiming at economic promotion, showing the numerous excellences of our land, arousing fgreat interest and curiosity for all the aspects of our cultural identity''. Trentino's ''Alta Via del Gusto'' was able to tell the strength and vitality of two territories. A journey throuhg wines and flavours from Northern to Southern Italy. From the wine bubbles of Trentodoc to the powerful Teroldego Rotaliano, without forgetting Trentingrana (cheese), apples, speck, grappa and other excellences hosted in the Ducal Castle of Corigliano. Everything displayed close to all the typical products of the province of Cosenza: precious extra virgin olive oils, Magliocco wine, figs, clementines and oranges from Sibaritide, caciovallo silano cheese, meats and hams from black pig. Products and stories that generated an extraordinary melange in the kitchen, under the guidance of master chefs Gennaro di Pace and Walter Miori.(ANSA).
