Alberello of Pantelleria, the First “Yes” from UNESCO

Foto-2_portaleIn October, 2014, the independent assessment body questioned by UNESCO for the nomination of the alberello vine of Pantelleria in the List of world intangible cultural heritage expressed a first positive opinion. According to this opinion, the agricultural practice at Pantelleria represents a unique example of its kind in vine cultivation, handed down from generation to generation in the community of this little island. The assessment expressed by this independent body will now be submitted to the Inter-Governmental Committee of the UNESCO Convention concerning the Intangible Cultural Heritage, which will meet in Paris from November 24th to 28th, 2014. The Committee may decide to confirm, amend or reject the opinion expressed by the assessment body.
