taiwanThe Clubalogue Society is organizing an event on an “Introduction and appreciation of the wonderful world of Extra Virgin Olive Oil” which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan between 08 – 14 December, 2014.

This news fills us with great satisfaction in knowing that the event is organized by Huang Xiaowen, who attended the Olive Oil Sommelier course, organized by IRVEA in April this year and successfully obtained her certificate of ‘Professional Olive Oil Sommelier’.

We are also very proud to announce that one of the key speakers at the meet is Marco Antonucci, our IRVEA delegate for Northern Italy and National Coordinator for International Olive Oil Experts (IOOE), the  Inter-professional Group established in 2012 by IRVEA for the certification and updating of professional skills of olive oil experts and tasters.

This is an important showcase for olive oil of excellence and for Italian knowhow and professionalism in this field, which IRVEA as always, supports and promotes.

All that remains is to wish both the organizers and participants a heartfelt “good luck”.

taiwanDall’8 al 14 dicembre la società Clubalogue organizza a Taipei un incontro di avvicinamento e divulgazione legato al mondo dell’extravergine.

La notizia ci riempie di soddisfazione per diversi motivi.

A organizzare l’evento è Xiaowen Huang che nell’aprile scorso ha partecipato al corso per Sommelier organizzato da IRVEA ottenendo il certificato di Professional Olive Oil Sommelier.

Inoltre, uno dei docenti del Corso è Marco Antonucci, delegato IRVEA per il Nord Italia e Coordinatore Nazionale degli Oliveoil Experts by IRVEA che ha personalmente selezionato parte degli oli, tutti rigorosamente italiani, che verranno portati e utilizzati in questa trasferta asiatica.

Si tratta, infine, di una grande vetrina per l’olio extravergine italiano di eccellenza che noi da sempre promuoviamo.

Non resta dunque che augurare un sentito in bocca al lupo a organizzatori e partecipanti.

Val d’Orcia since 10 years World Heritage site

The landscape of Val d’Orcia is part of the agricultural hinterland of Siena, which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata.

It is characterised by gentle and conical hills with fortified settlements on top occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages such as Pienza and Montalcino (the Brunello di Montalcino is counted among the most prestigious of Italian wines). It is a landscape which has become familiar through its depiction in works of art from the Renaissance painting to the modern photograph.

The landscape of the Val d’Orcia was celebrated by painters from the Scuola Senese, which flourished during the Renaissance. Images of the Val d’Orcia, and particularly depictions of landscapes where people are depicted as living in harmony with nature, have come to be seen as icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of landscape thinking

This is only one of the reasons that allowed that in 2004 the Val d’Orcia was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites
