Ever since ancient times the Mediterranean Sea has been the birthplace and home to civilization and cultures, which have prospered on its shores.

From the Phoenicians up until the Ancient Greeks, from the Roman Empire to nowadays, the communities of the Mare Nostrum have developed practices, knowledge, skills, identity and communal traditions in the world of craftsmanship, fishing and agriculture. Dating back to ancient times, cereals, olive trees, grapevines, fruit and vegetables have been cultivated on the Mediterranean land, cultivation and activities that shape the territory, conserving and safeguarding it in its biological and cultural diversity. The Mediterranean people have always acquired the food for their tables from these products, that not only represent a source of sustenance but also a priceless cultural heritage of the transmission of know-how, values and traditions.
