#Ragusa #birthday #Order #Agronomists #Foresters #Ragusa
Ragusa – A special birthday, celebrated in a special way, with three days of events and initiatives to celebrate the “90 years and more” of the Order of Agronomists and Foresters of the province of Ragusa.
From tomorrow Thursday 23 to Saturday 25 June, moments of deepening on the profession also looking at future perspectives, but also a dip in the past, among the memories and historical documents, on the history of the Order in the Hyblean area.
A party, the one dedicated to the 90 years of one of the longest-lived Orders in Italy, which should have taken place some time ago, but has been postponed due to the pandemic.
That’s why now ninety years and a few more are to be celebrated.
The Hyblaean territory, which has always been characterized by a flourishing and widespread agricultural activity, represents one of the most important Italian poles for primary production, also including numerous products of absolute excellence with recognition under the Doc, Dop, Docg and Igp brands as well as being able to count on various Slow Food presidia and Traditional Agri-food Products including Cerasuolo di Vittoria Docg, Hyblean honey, Dop Monti Iblei oil, Ragusano Dop cheese, just to name a few.
The numerous local companies that insist on our territory have been able to count over time on the professional and competent assistance that the Order of Agronomists and Foresters of the Province of Ragusa has made available to them.
The three days of meetings will therefore be an opportunity to celebrate the results achieved, the longest-lived members and outline the guidelines for the future of the sector.
But there is one more surprise.
Thanks to the synergy with the Banca Agricola Popolare di Ragusa, the works concerning innovation 4.0 in the agricultural sector will be rewarded, through a tender that was issued in recent weeks.
The Chamber of Commerce, the home of companies, will be the beating heart of the three days that begins with the inaugural day under the coordination of Agronomist Francesco Celestre, president of the organizing committee.
It will be the Agronomist Giuseppe Dipietro, president of the Order of Agronomists and Forestry Doctors of the province of Ragusa, to kick off the works with guests among others, the Forestry Doctor Sabrina Diamanti (President of Conaf), the Agronomist Stefano Poeta (President of Epap) and Agronomist Pietro Lo Nigro (President of Fodaf).
During the afternoon, awards will also be given to the former presidents of the Hyblean Order and to all those enrolled in the register with at least 40 years of activity behind them.
But the inaugural day of the “90 years and more” event will also be embellished by the inauguration of the exhibition organized inside the bag room, curated by the agronomist Orazio Sortino, with some of the most significant works and studies with which agronomists have made their contribution to the territory.
The second day of Friday 24 June will be characterized by numerous meetings and debates.
Among the interventions also that of sen.
Francesco Battistoni (Undersecretary of Mipaaf) who will focus on the national agri-food sector in relation to the role of Agronomists and Foresters and the lectio magistralis of the Agronomist Felice Assenza (Head of the Department of the Central Inspectorate for the protection of quality and the repression of fraud of agri-food products del Mipaaf) who will speak on unfair practices in agricultural supply chains.
Among the speakers, professor Stefano Masini (University of Rome Tor Vergata) will present his speech on the future possibilities of agriculture in terms of sustainability, environment and economy.
This will be followed by an awaited round table entitled “Hyblean agriculture in the international scenario” in close collaboration with the LAG Terra Barocca, LAG Valle del Golfo and LAG Natiblei, a real focus on excellent products born in the province of Ragusa and which have often conquered the world thanks to the happy union between the work of producers and the work of agronomists.
Saturday 25th conclusion with professional company visits.
“Three days that is above all a party, our party – comments the president Giuseppe Dipietro – An event that, in addition to rewarding the efforts and commitment of all members and those who preceded me, wants to be an important moment analysis of the sector, in a particular historical period in which teaming up is even more important than in the past.
This is why we all strongly believe in the future role that the Order of Agronomists and Foresters of the province of Ragusa must have in terms of protecting the products of our territory and research “.
For Doctor Agronmo Francesco Celestre, who chairs the celebrations committee, “it is certainly a pleasure for us to finally celebrate the important milestone that the Order has already reached in 2020.
Unfortunately, past circumstances have not allowed the normal development of the celebrations that now, after a long, forced gestation, they can begin.
It will be an opportunity to find ourselves all together, between new and long-lived members, to celebrate the excellences that our territory has managed to create and make known over time “.
The role of the LAGs, the local action groups operating under the aegis of the Region, is also fundamental.
“The LAG Terra Barocca works with the aim of promoting a concrete and innovative, multisectoral and integrated development strategy of the local territory – comments the director Salvatore Occhipinti – We aggregate local actors with the sole purpose of promoting the Hyblaean territory, generating value for our economy.
90 and more is the ideal meeting place to systematize the cultural, economic and productive heritage of our land “.
A common work that looks to the future.
“Our territory has always boasted a thriving agricultural activity which represents a pole of excellence recognized nationally and internationally – comments Prof.
Francesco Aiello, president of the Valli del Golfo LAG – The Valli del Golfo LAG has since its establishment, at the forefront of supporting and enhancing local territories and their environmental and productive resources.
This event represents a moment of fundamental meeting and comparison between the political and economic actors of the territory for the creation of new synergies and support of the typical features of the Hyblean area “.
