Finally the news that I think many of us expected from time.
Because wine but don't demonize is a culture that needs to be taught to learn a piece of history of our land, of us and those who came before us.
I have always been convinced that if the young tells everything that represents the wine, they will never treat it like a blast Saturday night (Notwithstanding that they do with the spirits and not with the nectar of Bacchus). So what, Here's the press release I just arrived, I propose and I fully applaud in the hope that this is really only the beginning and that the wine does not come very soon in all schools, not just those for, throughout Italy.
Next step. The food culture to be taught from elementary school, one of the greatest gifts you could ever do to our children.
Here's the press release:
Talk to the kids and wine culture, because wine is an integral part of the history and the national idenità Italy. Explaining to young people what it means to make a quality product, spread proper consumer education, providing them with the tools to approach the wine intelligently.
These were the first concrete steps raised by National Council of Italian Wine – Co. N.V. The. that at Expo 2015 It was officially presented with a very clear message: join forces to develop precise and effective projects, promoting the Italian wine heritage by involving first and foremost the young generation. The leader of this first program for students is Pia Donated Berlucchi, the promoter of the initiative first person.
"In a country of individualists like Italy – Pia explains Berlucchi, Project Manager schools co. N.V. – becomes extraordinary harmony, implemented in a few months, among so many associations. The first objective of the co. N.V. the. focuses on young, to build a bridge between tradition and the future of our children. The idea is to gather all our historical and environmental heritage to introduce wine and his knowledge as part of our national identity ".
A strong provocation, that educators have promptly answered: lunedì 16 November 2015, in Brescia, at the hotel school Mantegna, will be opened the first pilot project, forerunner of a series of initiatives involving all the national territory, that is already well 50 schools in Lombardy have expressed interest.
Contributed by Mario Mahajan, Executive Regent of the Uff. Scolastico Regionale per la Lombardia, that proved to be enthusiastic about the proposal, in six schools in the province of Brescia have indeed been fixed calendars of meetings entitled "Drinkaware – the wine among young people through education and culture ", four lessons of wine history. In each a public Institute by 150 to 300 students can grasp the knowledge of Italian wine tradition and its significance in history, but also to promote the theme of conscious consumption.
"The goal of ONAV and co. N.V. the. – Pia concludes Berlucchi – is to bring these interventions on the cultural history of wine in each city and submit to the Ministry of education program, to ensure that shares with institutions of higher School in Italy the message that wine is an amazing tool and Messenger of culture and communication ".
