Italian espresso UNESCO’s heritage
12 Jun 2017
Caffè Cagliari S.p.A. adheres to the Consortium for the Safeguard of Traditional Italian Espresso Coffee, the association born with the objective of safeguarding, enhancing and promoting Italian Espresso in the world.
The Consortium project aims to give to Espresso Italiano the prestigious recognition of UNESCO’s intangible heritage, which would guarantee greater protection for a typically Italian product.
The intangible heritages of humanity recognized by UNESCO are expressions of the world’s culture, which, unlike the heritage sites of mankind, are not tangible things but traditions or typical activities of a country.
A first step toward the recognition of our Italian espresso as one of the cornerstones of Italian culture and gastronomy, to be safeguarded and valued in the world.
