The Geographical Indications are an invaluable historical and cultural heritage of the territories of production and carriers of precious values for mankind, to be conveyed to future generations.
The constant increase of the Geographical Indications’ productivity and market values and the continuously growing interest of the consumers are a further confirmation of the central role of the GIs in the territorial economies of the entire World.
