Farmers, shepherds, fishermen, pork butchers, vine-dressers ... All people who embody a new idea of agriculture based on taste quality, sustainability and social justice; all they demand is fertile soil, clean seas, sufficient water and the free circulation of information, knowledgeand produce. Of these communities, 300 are Slow Food Presidia, developed worldwide to save food products in real danger of extinction"-- p.  of cover.
