The publishing house Artioli Editore 1899 offers a book on the ancient traditions of balsamic vinegar, explaining the evolution of the production processes that have led, over the centuries, to internationally recognized products: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, today protected by the EU, respectively as DOP (PDO – Protected Designation of Origin) and IGP (PGI – Protected Geographical Indication). The patronage of both the Protection Consortia, as well as the Consortium of Spilamberto, the Municipality of Modena and the Emilia-Romagna Region, underlines the institutional and official nature of the contents. The numerous expressive images highlight the peculiarities of the area and its traditions. The volume, with text in Italian and English, will be distributed on the main international markets, and may constitute an indispensable vehicle for the spread of the merits and qualities of balsamic vinegar and its producers.
