Together with one-hundred-thirty foreign countries, the twenty regions of Italy will have their right space inside Expo Milano 2015. Two of them will be given oustanding prominence: predicatbly Lombardia, headed by the Expo capital Milan; and – no less predictably – Lazio, headed by Rome, the state capital.
Each and every Italian region enjoys a specific variety of foods that are deeply rooted in local history and tradition.
Lazio selected those which best represent its identity both within Italy itself and abroad: 26 wines; 14 types of meat and sausages; 8 bakery and confectionery; 10 types of cheese and dairy products; 26 including vegetables, fruits and legumes; 4 oils and 12 among fish products, mineral waters and other categories.
