Slow Food Heroes: when traditions offer new perspectives.
Tradition pervades many facets of daily Italian life. This is what inspired Leonardo to return to his origins and find a new career that would either help him economically or pay homage to past wisdom. After a degree in zootechnics, Leonardo left the hustle and bustle of Italy’s capital, Rome, for his ancestral home in Abruzzo, where he set up a goat farm and officially began his farming adventure.
Through the use of traditional methods, he produces artisanal cheese that respects his heritage and revives time-honoured traditions. This is a perfect demonstration of how past legacies can still contribute to the economy, by always offering new opportunities.
