Great enthusiasm for the opening of the Rice Fair. The 54th edition officially began on Wednesday 14 September. The city and regional authorities, with the president of the Veneto region Luca Zaia, the vice president Elisa De Bertithe sole director of the Isola della Scala Fair Authority Roberto Venturi and the Mayor Luigi Mirandola, accompanied by the Scala band band Vincenzo Mela and the Mondine group, they left Pra ‘Piganzo for the usual parade among the stands, up to the hall. Here the greetings from the institutions.

“The opening of the event represents the restart – reiterated Venturi. – This edition will be just a preview of the future. From here, a new Rice Fair begins to take shape which, without forgetting its roots, looks to the next few years, to what we want to become and to the great projects that we are starting to implement. We have completely renovated the Palarisitaly restaurant, we have created a new website, we can buy risottos through the App, we are ready to make important investments to create and renew the food and wine tours of rice, making the territory of Isola accessible to all, as well as sustainable. of the Scala. Above all, we are embodying a new vision. The 54th Rice Fair opens its doors to internationalization and, with the “Taste of Earth” project, we are hosting a week of events from 24 September to 2 October, with exhibitors and chefs from all over the world. This is a long-term project: we believe that Nano Vialone Veronese Igp rice should be valued beyond the borders of our national territory. But not only that, we want the Fair to become the first observatory on rice consumption and new trends, on the evolution of the sector and of the supply chain at national and international level ».

President Scalzotto he added: «Agriculture, cuisine, landscape, culture, economy, social issues: few typical products, such as the one grown in Isola della Scala and in the other municipalities of the Igp, have had the ability to become multipliers of opportunities. What has been done here, I believe is a model that other Veronese and Veneto productions should aspire to. The ‘secret’ ingredient was and is the ability of associations, public and private, to collaborate in proposing the most important international event dedicated to quality rice ».

Before the ribbon cutting, word to the governor of Veneto Luca Zaia: «This 2022 edition is a historic edition of a fair which, in addition to being one of the longest-running events in the Veneto with its 54 editions, is back in great shape after a 2-year stop due to the pandemic. Expression of a territory capable of bringing together the magical trio of tourism-agriculture-food and wine, the Fair, with its prince, Riso Nano Vialone Veronese PGI, enhances a highly identifying raw material of the highest quality and excellent quantity, to the point that in Veneto produces an average of 35 thousand tons of rice in a year, in almost 1,500 hectares cultivated in the 25 municipalities of the province of Verona. Over 150 exhibitors are expected from various regions of Italy and some foreign countries such as Morocco, Iran, Portugal, Bulgaria, Tunisia. To all of them, and to the excellent organizers, I wish the greatest success ».
