The support of the Tuscany region in the path to make it become a "heritage of humanity"
The memorandum of understanding in support of the candidacy of the Chianti Classico cultural landscape in the Unesco world heritage list represents a highly anticipated moment, "essential and essential in the path initiated by the foundation for the protection of the Chianti Classico territory and that in the last year, despite all the limits dictated by the pandemic, has seen the intensification of the work under the scientific direction of the teacher Paola Falini and thanks to the participation of the municipalities of the area involved and the Chianti Classico wine consortium", says a press release.
The result of this work will therefore soon be submitted to the evaluation of the Ministry of Culture which will be called to express itself.
