Valle d’Aosta. The ability to achieve in a difficult and challenging territory

Expo e territori la Valle d'Aosta

The territory of the Valle d’Aosta includes all the Italian mountains over 4,000 metres and has an average altitude of 2,000 metres. It is a harsh, challenging, and sometimes hostile land, where, despite the bitter climate, the complex morphology and tough terrain have nonetheless produced excellent agricultural foods, crafts and technologies.
Through special itineraries, the project offers a view of its excellent achievements, the wine and milk production chains, respectively in the valleys around Courmayeur/Mont Blanc and Cogne/Gran Paradiso for wine and in the Valtournenche/Mount Cervino and the Gressoney Valley and Val d’Ayas/Mount Rosa for milk.
