Episode 771 Marc Millon interviews Valeria Perzia from the Libera Terra Consortium, in this episode of Italian Food & Wine with Marc Millon on the Italian Wine Podcast.
About Terra Libera:
Libera Terra (“Freed Land”) was created with the aim of developing stunning but historically “difficult” territories. After a social and productive rehabilitation of assets freed from various mafia groups, the organization aims to obtain high quality products, which respect both the environment and the dignity of its workers. But Libera Terra also plays an active role by involving other producers, who share the same principles, and by promoting organic farming more generally.
The mission of the Libera Terra project is to give dignity to territories with a strong mafia presence through the creation of autonomous and cooperative farms that are self-sufficient, stable, and that are able to create work places, thereby establishing a moral economic system based on legality, social justice and market.
