The road to Fieragricola 2024 saw a series of presentations of the event also in central and southern Italy. For Raul Barbieri, commercial director of Veronafiere, these meetings "were an opportunity to reaffirm to qualified stakeholders Fieragricola's attention to an agriculture that boasts different production orientations, but all characterized by the ability to express high added value and ensure a return for agricultural businesses, supply chains and rural areas as a whole. We are convinced that the exhibition will be an opportunity to accompany the growth and innovation projects that the farms of Central and Southern Italy and the Islands are defining“.
